| The title explained
This is a disappointing movie, even if you like Deanna Durbin, which I do.

Two men are credited with writing the script, and that amazes me. The plot meanders from one embarrassing non-situation to the next. The director, Henry Koster, made some very fine movies, such as Harvey. Why he filmed this script in this shape I don't know.

Several previous reviewers have wondered about the title, which makes no sense here. The music, and so perhaps - but I emphasize *perhaps* - the plot come from a musical by Robert Stolz called *Spring Parade*. It has some good music in it. Why Universal took just three songs and then repeated them over and over I don't know.

If you've seen *The Great Waltz*, MGM's lavish movie from two years before (1938), the big scenes in this will look pretty weak.
