| Wonderful music but thin plot
Paper thin plot but what great music!! James Cardwell was attractive but the star presence just was not there which shows whenever another actor that has it like Linda Darnell or Jack Oakie is on screen, he just disappears. Lynn Bari and Allyn Joslyn add nice touches of spice throughout. Benny Goodman was no actor but it doesn't matter when the music starts. Linda Darnell is fantastically beautiful even able to carry off some of the elaborate hairstyles of the period that swamped many women. This is the kind of part that 20th Century Fox wasted her in through her years at the studio. To get a glimpse at what a great actress she could be catch "Summer Storm" her next film after this where she shows given the chance that she was capable of brilliant things.
