Aren't we lucky in Oz!
A late night fixture in Australia, this delicious B grade RKO musical using recycled Astaire Rogers sets is a very funny musical. The idea could easily be remade into a modern Broadway stage musical like THE PRODUCERS as it centres around a songwriting duo who cheat using a bumpkin music student who creates swing tunes while he is asleep. the couple of dance numbers are very good and 18 year old Ann Miller had a dazzler in the first few minutes. The hayseed number about 20 minutes in also features leggy antics that will draw gasps from viewers 1938-2008. I find it hard to believe it cost $810,000 as more expensive films like "Roberta" and other Astaire Rogers films cost the same amount. This one uses recycled sets and does not lose any points for that at all. It is de-licious and de-lovely even if Cole didn't write the songs. The swing tunes are great.Genuinely. A lot of deco swing fun for 90 mins.
