Goofs

During a montage showing Martha's rise to stardom, there's a shot of stacks of fan letters, all of them bearing the address of what turns out to be Martha's home address. Even in the far more innocent times in which the film was set, stars didn't publicly reveal their home addresses and virtually all fan mail would have been addressed to her movie studio or record label or simply "Hollywood."

Bubbly fluff...
15 October 2007 | by (las vegas, nv) – See all my reviews

Doris Day's second feature may have been written expressly for the hot new talent, what with a feisty character similar to her own personality involved in familiar circumstances. Radio show producer Jack Carson loses his temperamental star and has to find a new and exciting singer, 'accidentally' hearing perky Doris delivering a ditty and giving her a break. Playing a single mom and working girl, Day eventually goes to Hollywood yet doesn't forget her old chum, who has become a romantic partner. Extremely minor offering from Warner Bros. overdoses a bit on Day's natural spunk, though she does have a few nice numbers and works very comfortably with Carson. This is the movie with the elaborate Bugs Bunny dream sequence, which doesn't have a lot to do with what's going on but is colorful nevertheless. ** from ****
