Funny and Entertaining
Have seen Joe E. Brown movies before but this was 'early Joe E.', before his screen persona became that of an overconfident country bumpkin, as in "Elmer The Great", or "Alibi Ike". It is also Pre-Code and must have been considered naughty for picture made in 1930, as the dialogue is full of double entendres, and for that matter single entendres.

As noted above, this picture is worth seeing on two counts. Brown is at his best and funniest and the musical numbers are very good - and the dancing is even better. And I didn't know Brown could dance as well as he did here. There is a lot of fun and entertainment packed into only 71 minutes.

Was not familiar with any of the supporting cast except Frank McHugh - Jack Whiting was average and Bernice Claire was lovely to look at and had a good soprano voice. See it if it comes on again, as it's not available on tape or DVD.

This movie was on ol' reliable TCM on 7/29.
