| Everyone Sings But The Mule
Professor Martha O'Driscoll brings her mule to her farm for a vacation, only to find a movie company shooting a picture. Despite the usual number of complications, love blossoms all around.

It's a PRC musical, believe it or not. The problems are numerous, with a script and film that seems to have been edited the way John Ford edited on site when an executive complained he was supposed to have shot six additional pages by this point. * It also has its points, including a decent set of songs, a well-trained mule, John Carradine, Chester Clute, and Roscoe Karns. The details of the nominal plot about the mule rears its head only occasionally, which is all to the good as far as I'm concerned. Still, all in all, it's a rather sweet movie for what was probably conceived as competition to Judy Canova.

* If you don't know the anecdote, Ford is reported to have torn up twelve pages, and announced "There! Now we're six pages ahead!" I imagine he had won at least one of his Oscars by then.
