| The trials of an incompetent lyricist in the Big Apple.
This is a sappy adaptation of the infinitely better written Kaufman/Lardner play. It would have been preferable to film the play as written, rather than having "hacks" rewrite and alter it (although one suspects that the competent Joseph L. Mankiewicz, who is credited as one of the "writers", must not have been too involved) . Despite the butcher job done on the text, the film (rarely shown) is pleasant in its own way and worth seeing for performances by Harry Akst as Max Schwartz and Wynne Gibson as Lucille Sears. Jack Oakie fares well as Fred Stevens, the lyricists whose lyrics are unbelievable! For comparison, check out the Jack Cassidy version.
