Engaging musical
27 August 2005 | by See all my reviews

This is clearly a long forgotten musical as is evidenced by the fact that it has not registered 5 votes.Yet i have to say it is very entertaining.There is singing and dancing from Ann Miller and comedy from Jerry Colunna.Colunna used of course to be Bob Hope's straight man and turned up in a good many films in the 40s.He had a big mustache and a very loud voice which he put to good use in shouting rather than singing songs.What you could term a lowbrow Mario Lanza!The film is centered around a dance band entertaining a war plant and sacrificing their musical careers for the war.So at certain times the message is sold to you good and hard.Give up your $2000 a week contract and work in a war plant!Anyway ignoring the message it is all good fun.
