Gigantic Films wants to build up married singing radio stars Arthur Jackson and Cassi Evelon as their next big screen sweethearts. That job is made all the more difficult when they learn that Arthur and Cassi are on the verge of divorce. Using some already shot footage of Arthur, the studio's publicity man, Hugo Quill, thinks he has a way to bring Arthur and Cassi back together again. Written by
Rather bland two-reeler from Warner takes place at a movie studios projection room where at the start of the film a big shot is taking a look at a dancing act. From here enters a publicity guy (Eddie Foy, Jr.) who is going to take a big couple on the radio and throw them into a romantic movie but he's not aware that the couple is fighting and heading towards a divorce. From here we pretty much get a couple more musical acts as well as a couple comedy acts but the truth is that nothing really stands out here. Director Roy Mack would turn out dozens of these without blinking an eye and I think it's pretty clear that this here is one of the weaker ones. That's not to say the film doesn't have a few merits because it does. I thought Foy was pretty good in his role and he was clearly giving it his all as his energy level helps keep the film moving. I also thought Jack Arthur was good in his part. It's just that the comedy was bland and none of the singing really grabbed my attention.
