A radio detective sets out to solve an old murder case, with the help of her sound man and another radio detective. They manage to talk to the people involved in the case, but shortly afterwards the main suspects turn up dead.
Betty Hutton was one of the greatest musical performers of her day. Not only did she sing great but she could be funny/serious at a drop of a hat. This was her last major film before she walked out of Paramount(her studio) and eventually left movies.
Here she is playing stage star Blossom Seeley. The acting is good and the script is typical for a Bio-pic. A nice little story with some good musical numbers. I saw this one many years ago and enjoyed it. Maybe the reason it didn't do so well at the Box Office is because she is playing an almost all dramatic role here. If you have seen any of her other films, you know that Betty Hutton is best loved for her comedic talent.
If you love Betty Hutton, then this is a must see(8/10). If you want something to pass the time with, and you like musicals, then you might enjoy this one(6/10).
