This movie is somewhat amusing but as bland as can be.
It's an early comment on the rage for imported stars a la Garbo and Deitrich: Edmund Lowe is determined to get a Norwegian star for his movie. (His star his quit in a huff.) He looks and he looks. Finally, he goes with friends to a circus. There he spies a pretty girl doing a pitch in an obvious phony French accent. If French, why not Norwegian? That girl is the main reason to watch this. She is the young Ann Sothern. Her nose seems a little different from later appearances. But she is dewy and charming. What a charmer she was! The Warner Brothers Busby Berkley movies were made around this time. They were innovative, racy, and funny. This is none of those things. It could easily be a 1940s movie with Wayne Morris and Jane Wyman. It's pleasant enough, though.
