Having been a fan of Larry Parks for over 60 years (I 'discovered' him in "Blondie Goes to College" in 1942!) , I have quite a collection of his films. Recently, I finally acquired "Emergency Wedding" and enjoyed it tremendously. Larry and Barbara Hale were a great team in "Jolson Sings Again" and once more, in this film they are wonderful together. It is a charming, and funny film about a lady doctor and her jealous husband (especially of her male patients) and Larry handles the comedy exceptionally well. Some of Mr. Park's 'post Jolson' films were disappointing, but this movie more than makes up for them. Perhaps it was because Edward Buzzell was always such a good director.
