| Star Spangled Rhythm- Let's Hear it for Paramount **1/2
Paramount produced a cavalcade of stars in this traditional World War 11 patriotic film dealing with the situations that ensue when an attendant at Paramount Studios tries to impress his navy son by claiming that he is a studio mogul.

Naturally, this evolves into situations too numerous to speak of here.

Victor Moore is the father and Eddie Bracken stars as the son. Bette Hutton is marvelous as Bracken's girlfriend and the ensemble cast at Paramount are terrific when putting on a show for the navy.

You have to feel for Walter Abel, a mogul who is victimized in the scheme of Hutton and Moore.

Add 1/2* for Bing Crosby's patriotic song ending.
