| Fun from a very young Ginger Rogers and Jack Oakie
I viewed a battered copy of this movie, taken from an old MCA-TV 16mm print. While it only contains one song, "How I Wish I Could Learn To Say I Love You", it still is fun to watch due to the intrigue of the on screen villains and their attempts to take over Ellen Saunders company. The half-wittedness of Littleton Looney fits Jack Oakie's acting style to a tea, thus his portrayal of an earth mover operator whom everyone thinks an engineer is believable.

Ginger Rogers is very young here and looks quite different than in her RKO or WB pictures. While not a sexy vixen here, her impish cuteness in this and 'Queen High' can be quite charming. This is her first starring role in a full length feature. Her first full length feature as a supporting actress is 'Young Man of Manhattan', in which she plays a marriage wrecking teenage flapper named Puff. This is worth seeking out as well.
