Jean Harlow's singing and dancing talents were marginal at best, and MGM ended up dubbing most of her singing with the voice of Virgina Verrill, and employing a dancing double for use in long shots. Harlow's own singing voice is heard in the first stanza of the title song, a 43-second segment that was highlighted decades later in That's Entertainment! (1974). See more »

A pretty forgettable movie starring William Powell and Jean Harlow. The plot really doesn't really come together and seems to be just thrown together. There are a few musicals numbers but they are pretty bad and don't compare to The Great Ziegfeld. Harlow looks like she's mouthing the words and her dance scene will only shows her legs and nothing else. The plot has something to do with Powell and Harlow being in love with each other but Franchot Tone comes in and steals Harlow away before Powell makes his move. Rosalind Russell is in love with Tone but she winds up getting married to someone else. The movie just doesn't work and this was directed by the same guy who directed The Wizard of Oz and Gone with the Wind.
