| Margaret Hamilton saves it
Jeez this is hard to watch and this era would be my favourite.

Joan Davis doesn't know whether she wants to be Martha Raye, Betty Hutton or Eve Arden and fails in any comparison to them.

Jack Haley is my (and I stress) personal least favourite "leading man" or song and dance man of this era despite the legendary Wizard of Oz being in his resume.

Some of the routines are cringe-worthy. Check out Haley's impression of a fly landing on a cube of sugar and a chunk of limberger. Then if you can stomach it, Davis' rendition of an outboard motor trying to start. The sound effects of both were so obviously dubbed over and the paltry effort to be funny so bad, that I couldn't help imagining the embarrassment Davis and Haley must have felt actually standing on set in front of a camera and doing that stuff.

Margaret Hamilton saved this horror from a 1 rating. Her cynical spinster shtick is endearing as always.

I'm glad I saw it though and I'm consigning the memory to experience rather than pleasure.
