| Uneven comedy veers between romance and wackiness
Wrestling manager Jack Oakie teams up with world-famous tenor John Boles, who apparently needs a personal trainer. Oakie takes Boles to Budapest to get away from it all, where Boles immediately falls for singer Ida Lupino, whose cabaret act features songs and a dummy.

The Boles-Lupino romance is fairly straightforward but Oakie's comedy tends toward Ritz Brothers-style goofiness, and the picture does seem to have trouble making up its mind whether to be cute or merely obnoxious....

Margot Grahame has a fun role as a gold digger who dumps Boles in a fit and marries dim-but-brawny wrestler Gordon Jones in a hurry.

Erik Rhodes is hilarious as Spadissimo, Lupino's continental would-be lover who may or may not want to kill Boles in a duel but really wants people to know what a dashing rogue he is: "I will show you that I come from a family of fighting fools! Of which I am the biggest!"

Lots of laughs and silly characters, even if it does come across as rather disjointed instead of supremely wild and crazy.
