Trivia

Filmed between mid-December 1943 and May 17, 1944, the movie's wide release was held back until March 9, 1946, and then the picture's Manhattan opening at the Strand Theatre followed on March 15, 1946. Snipped out of the release print were several references to "ongoing" World War II, which had ended on August 14, 1945. See more »

Dreadful comedy...a good director's worst film
12 December 2010 | by moonspinner55See all my reviews

Cut-rate romantic shenanigans from Warner Bros. and director Busby Berkeley features Joan Leslie as a ditsy band singer who stands to inherit $10,000,000 from a deceased relative--provided she marries a man with a high I.Q. under the deadline. Playing the kind of kooky girl who mistakes a bar of soap for cheese and thinks the 17th President of the United States was named Abraham Jefferson, Leslie's wide-eyed, open-mouthed innocent-act gets a strenuous workout here (she's nearly impossible to take). Songs by Jule Styne and Sammy Cahn aren't enough to save the picture, which shoehorns in greedy lawyers, hep-cat professors, and a penniless pianist who wants to "live on love". Poor in all respects, the film sat on the shelf for two years before Warners finally released it. They shouldn't have bothered. NO STARS from ****
