American Film Institute Catalog of Feature Films (1941-1950) includes an actor named 'Jerry Lewis' in an uncredited role as one of the milkmen. This is not the well-known comedian, 'Jerry Lewis' (I), who was under contract to Hal Wallis at this time, and a prominent player in his own right. See more »
Donald O'Connor and Jimmy Durante star in this musical comedy concerning an ambitious milkman and his mentor. Universal was a good studio for O'Connor. They recognized his gifts for comedy, especially physical comedy, and gave him lots of opportunities to show his stuff. This is one of his last films before he moved on to bigger budget projects. However, it is in these budget minded Universal comedies that O'Connor really shines. Giving him Durante as his mentor adds to the comic possibilities. Durante was one of the most lovable comedians and this film gives him plenty of time to sing, strut, and do the kind of shtick he is most associated with. Piper Laurie, in a very early role, is a fine leading lady for O'Connor. She stays out of his way, which cannot be said for former leading lady Peggy Ryan. Jerry Lewis makes a very brief appearance as a milkman. For fans of low comedy hi-jinks, this film is a must see.
