Of Joe Pasternak's 57 MGM productions released between 1942 and 1966, this film was just one of two which failed to garner a contemporary New York Times review. The second movie was Looking for Love (1964). See more »
After the dance number with Jane and the three guys with serving trays, they place the trays behind him and the sticks on the bottom they held while dancing were clearly visible, but cut to the next shot and the trays are flat on the floor. See more »
I was stationed in Korea for a year during the spring offensive , heartbreak ridge, etc. and they showed this movie one night. We loved it. Satchmo singing a "kiss to build a dream on" was fantastic. And would you believe we had the projectionist replay the Sally Forrest dance scene a dozen times!I gave this movie a 7 because it brought back memories after 50 years, even though ,aside from the good jazz, and Sally Forrest, the acting and story was mediocre. I only regret that it isnt on VHS.
