A Forgotten Gem
29 June 2020 | by JLRMovieReviewsSee all my reviews

Jack Oakie and Jack Haley are songwriters who want to hit the big time. They hichhike their way to Hollywood. Along the way, they meet Ginger Rogers. This musical comedy lives virtually in obscurity, which is a shame. Oakie and Haley make for quite a pair and are very funny. The songs are very snappy and clever, and the movie even features a Busby Berkeley-like musical number. I could have rewatched this. This is my new favorite discovery. This short review barely scratches the surface of the charm of this forgotten gem.
