Nice turn of the century film where Kathryn Grayson comes to N.Y. to sing in a joint. Her presence there threatens a scandal in her native Boston as her uncle is the Republican candidate for mayor of the town.
He comes with his wife to investigate and the fun starts. June Allyson is her sister and Jimmy Durante, the owner of the place where Grayson is singing. To save Grayson, Durante arranges for her to sing at the opera with the established Lauritz Melchior.
Peter Lawford, falls for Allyson but thinks that Grayson is having an affair with his father.
The picture becomes funny at times but needed technicolor to brighten it up.
Ben Blue is funny as a drunken waiter and Melchior shows some comedic gift here.
A pleasant film capturing the turn of the century musical traditions in America.
