This is a great movie if you like the big band sound. The story line is quite simple, 2 girls vying for the attention of 1 boy. Some of it is filmed on location in Sun Valley, Idaho about 1940.
The movie is filled with big band music, featuring Glenn Miller and his band. The big number is Chattanooga Choo-Choo and includes a dance number by the Nicholas Brothers. Seeing Milton Berle and Joan Davis as youngsters is very enjoyable.
I was not born until many years after this movie was made, but I find it nostalgic anyway. It has a lot more music as well and a lot of skating by Sonja Henie.
I highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys the big band sound.
