Cute, silly, wholesome fun.
13 January 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

When viewing films like this one, from this era, I think it important to keep certain things in mind. It helps keep the film in proper perspective. With that in mind, consider ... "Talkies" were still thought by some to be a passing fad. Many things were done purposely in an over-the-top manner so as to insure they came across on film. Subtle wasn't much of a consideration back then. There was a great deal of inexperience, both behind and in front of the camera, in what was still a fairly young industry, especially as it related to talkies and newer equipment that was steadily being developed. Much was new, untried and unknown. Its just as important to be able to spot raw, untrained talent as it is to know no talent. Comparing yesterdays cinematography by todays standards does a disservice to both the art of THAT era and the modern viewer. With these things remembered ... This film is one of those cute, silly, wholesome things churned out by Hollywood daily to meet the demands of the entertainment industries growing number of theatre goers. And thats all it is. But, that was good enough in the day for a smile and chuckle or two to relieve the tension of the day and it ought to be worth that much now. And so it is. ... One last thing to consider. The word "review"? Its synonymous with "opinion" here.
