| The Key To Her Heart
Although Alice Faye is in great voice and sings a very good number, Here's The Key To My Heart, in She Learned About Sailors the film itself is a rather dopey one about the romance of a café singer and Navy enlisted man when they meet in Shanghai.

Shanghai was a big port of call for our Navy in Kuomintang China, we had Marines stationed there for most of the years between the World Wars. The sailor in this film is Lew Ayres who even warbles a few unmemorable notes in passing.

Sad to say though other than Alice's singing, She Learned About Sailors will not go down as one of her memorable films. Lew Ayres is unfortunately saddled with a pair of stumble-bum comics, Frank Mitchell and Jack Durant, who are constantly interfering one way or the other with their buddy's romance. The film is really all about them and their interference.

Alice did manage to record Here's the Key to My Heart before Darryl F. Zanuck lowered the boom on her recording career. The record she does with it is a good one and it has the added attraction of Alice being backed by Rudy Vallee and the Connecticut Yankees with Rudy making an unbilled appearance on the record.

But take it from me folks, the record Alice made is far better than the film the song came from.
