| The Wonderful Francis Langford!
This movie is a treat for Francis Langford fans. Looking spectacular, sounding divine, this is a charmingly beautiful little movie. It is fast paced and right to the point. Thats what I love about the movies from the 30's and the 40's. Excellent pacing, whether due to the expertise of the film makers or budget constraints, the films move right along. Philip Terry is a perfect choice for the love interest. Handsome, debonair, and Ralph Edwards is superb as the scheming lawyer. Grady Sutton in a cameo role is his usual bumbling self. Throw in Gene Krupa and his band and you've got an hour of happiness! But its Frances Langford that is the STAR here. Charming, vulnerable, and so gorgeous. No wonder she stole the hearts of GI's and civilians during and after WWII. Highest recommendation!
