B Musical remake of TIN PAN ALLEY easy to take, nothing special

This updated remake of TIN PAN ALLEY is an okay "B" musical - nothing special in plot, music or performances, but not awful either. The scoring (jazzy, upbeat tempos in Big Band sound) justly earned an Oscar nomination. It's your typical musical bio - songwriters struggle to achieve stardom, do, and eventually win the girls. The oddity here is the cameo of Jeanne Crain as the girl who gets to introduce the song promised to our struggling leading lady, Liza Martin. Crain was not a musical star at Fox - although she appeared in a number of musicals she never sang a note, was always dubbed. Major faux pas for Fox to cameo her in this role instead of other true singers they had under contract (such as Alice Faye). Other cameos: Victor Mature; Dan Dailey; Reginald Gardiner. The film is not worth seeking out, but it does pass the time.
