Dancer Jeannie James is a headliner at a New York club. Her brother sells insurance and wants help meeting Al Potts, a radio comic in line for a million dollar policy. Jeanne volunteers to make the sale, arranging to meet Al at his favorite watering hole. At the same time that she goes to work on sales, she falls for one of Al's friends while her pal Mabel sets her eyes on Al's radio-show partner, Jack Saunders. Business and pleasure mix well, and, as the plot moves, Jeanne, Al, and Jack get in several song and dance numbers. Written by
A trifle easily forgotten for its comedy and its music...
When you score a misfire on both comedy and music, you might as well fold your tent and go home.
"Two little birdies, fly and go home," sings a high pitched tenor in the closing song. The acting is inept, MITZI MAYFAIR displays nothing that would make anyone think she was once the toast of Broadway, the songs are forgettable and the comedy routines are beyond weak.
Hard to see what movie-goers in the '30s saw in this kind of tripe.
Mercifully, this Vitaphone Brevity from Warner Bros. is very brief. By the time it's over, you'll be grateful.
Directed by Roy Mack, it gives more running time to DONALD NOVIS, a very high pitched tenor, rather than MITZI MAYFAIR. Mitzi only does a couple of dances--with no particular flair in style or content.
This is one old short that can easily be skipped.
