When Eddie Bracken Sings Like Bing, Diana Lynn Loses Dough
30 September 2019 | by bobliptonSee all my reviews

Diana Lynn's all-girl musical troupe is stuck in Pennsylvania. When she hears Eddie Bracken sing -- his voice is dubbed by Bing Crosby -- she figures this is her ticket to the big time, and puts him under contract for $50 a week. To finance her New York assault, she sells locals parts of his contract, adding up to 125% of his net earnings. Bracken is indeed a wild success, but every time he gets an offer, Miss Lynn winds up further in the hole.

It's a kitchen-sink musical comedy with a swipe at the bobby-soxers swooning for Frank Sinatra. It also has a lot of middling musical talent on view; they were big talents in 1945, but their luster has certainly faded. Johnny Mercer and Harold Arlen contribute the title song and two others, and Hal Walker's debut as a director is sustained more by the specialty numbers than by the story or comedic talents of Bracken, Miss Lynn or second-billed Veronica Lake.
