The TV-like machine on which June Havoc is shown performing "The Man with the Big Sombrero" is a "Panoram," a video jukebox that showed short films of popular bands and entertainers during the 1940's. The films shown on it were called "Soundies" and were essentially the music videos of the time. See more »

This is a factual and authentic document based on actual conditions existing in the world today. It is admittedly propaganda. It is a picture with a purpose. Try to find it.

A B film but a very funny comedy starring Martha Scott and Dennis O'Keefe as newlyweds who get caught up in the schemes of daddy (Adolphe Menjou) as he tries to win back mama's (Billie Burke) money at a crooked roulette wheel. Not much on plot but very funny with Menjou's opera singer wife (Pola Negri in her first American film in more than a decade)) singing Wagner at any given moment.
The film rushes between standard comedy and weird comments to the camera. There's also a running gag about an actress who is only in the film because she's dating the director. And then there's that animated wallpaper.
Co-Stars include June Havoc, who steals the film as a nightclub singer who at one point sings a duet with herself, Walter Kingsford, Bess Flowers, Barton Hepburn, Georges Metaxa, Paul Porcasi, Harry Tyler, Matt McHugh, and Bert Roach. as the flustered cab rider.
The real interest here is of course Pola Negri in a talkie ... and she's very funny indeed and looks great.
