Rudy Vallee plays Dr. Vallee, a man working at a hospital where music cures all. We see Dr. Vallee perform some of his musical talents, which include singing as well as helping sick people overcome various "illnesses" including one woman with music starvation. If you're looking for a strong, Oscar-worthy plot then it's best to skip this thing but if you just want some mild and charming entertainment then this film offers up plenty of that. The entire idea of a musical hospital makes for a decent set-up and I thought Vallee was very good in his role as the doctor. We all know that he has no problem singing but I was impressed with how well he was with the comic timing and the way he said his lines with a certain zing. There are a few interesting sequences including a brief animated one and towards the end there's an early television shown, which looks more sci-fi than countless science fiction movies that would be released over the next two decades. Mae Questel, the voice of Betty Boop and Olive Oyl, plays the main nurse here and comes off quite well. It seems as if she and Vallee are having a wonderful time flirting.
