Joan Crawford was a regular visitor on the set since she was mad about Bing Crosby. She and Marion Davies were friendly but not great pals although they shared two things in common: they adored their former leading man William Haines, and disliked their major rival at MGM, Norma Shearer. See more »
I expected a lot of enjoyment from this early MGM musical, directed by the great Raoul Walsh. Instead, it is a trifle that somehow works mainly as a showcase for Bing Crosby and Marion Davies. I found the whole film to be intermittently dull and underwhelming, and the songs and numbers oddly misfire from start to finish.
