| Original concept but rather tedious
A musical with a short running time and the original concept of a Broadway producer being appointed as the secretary of amusement by the U.S president . This becomes an excuse for a series of song and dance and cabaret skits with a loose plot which includes a cursory love story and some political skullduggery. Most of the song and dance numbers are tedious but it is interesting to see an early appearance from Shirley Temple. The comedy skits are rather better with Mitchell and Durant doing some wonderful acrobatics and Nigel Bruce, 14th billed as Dinwiddie, being droll, though his appearances are disappointingly fleeting (apparently there are 12 minutes lost from the original cut). Stepin Fetchit's antics will divide modern audiences in this P.C age!
