As Jimmy follows Molly to the house, the bag of apples is held waist-high by the bottom of the bag. In the closer shot, the bag has disappeared and his hand is down by his side. When he brings the bag back into view, he is holding it at the top, whereas previously he held it by the bottom. See more »

Toe Tapping Silliness
14 April 2007 | by glcody26See all my reviews

I have a Super 8 Sound print of this gem, and it has been an audience favorite for years at my "Movie Nights"-- no figuring out an involved, complicated plot-- Jimmy is a nice guy, Paulette is gorgeous, and the movie mesmerizes the audience with the corny comedy, predictable outcomes and more than memorable music (who can forget "With a Knife, A Fork, and A Spoon"?) This is Hollywood escapism to the Nth degree-- songs that work, sets that satisfy and a story line as simple as a Hallmark card, all of it embellished with two young and energetic stars surrounded by the musical genius of Horace Heidt and his crew. I haven't screened this one in years, but I plan to show it soon enough--a perfect example of why movies always beat reality.
