| Beautiful singing - Awful "comic" relief
Charles King and Irene Delroy have great voices. Originally planned as a full scale musical, by the time that filming was coming to an end the Warner Bros. realized that the public was tired of musicals. It is a shame that the so called comics Ole Olsen & Chic Johnson were added to this picture in an attempt to sell this musical picture as a comedy. These men are about as funny as finger nails scraping against a chalk board. Their grating laughter is even more annoying. The picture would have been a lot better if all their parts had been cut out of the picture. Vivien Oakland surprised me with her voice... I had no idea she could sing. Her voice is pleasing. Noah Beery is hilarious as the villain. Lotti Loder and Charles Judels are amusing in their comic parts...

Unfortunately the presence of Ole Olsen & Chic Johnson completely ruins the picture....What Warner Bros. saw in them is beyond me. They went on the ruin two other expensive Warner Bros. productions in 1931 including the all Technicolor "50 Million Frenchmen" and the Winnie Lightner (planned musical) comedy picture "Gold Dust Gertie" --- I suppose fans of low-brow buffoons like the Ritz Brothers, The Yacht Club Boys or the Three Stooges might find them amusing.
