| A very enjoyable film, humorous with great music.
Rita and I enjoyed this film very much. It is obviously an attempt in the 1930's to make opera style music popular by mixing it with comedy. Nino Martini has a great voice, and with his Italian accent, reminded us a little of Roberto Benigni. The plot revolves around Nino, who is traveling to Hollywood in search of fame. He falls in with a gang of crooks who use his talent to distract everyone at a party while they steal the jewels. There are many great character actors doing their routines, such as Billy Gilbert with his sneezing, Alan Hale as an opera loving cop, Ward Bond as a thug, Alan Mowbray as the stuffy conductor, and co-starring Joan Fontaine as the love interest. There is also a great unbilled musical bit by Romo Vincent (I had never heard of him before) as a singing truck driver.
