| Beautiful direction by Douglas Sirk of Dorothy Lamour
I knew nothing of this film, but watching it one immediately sees the extraordinary quality of the direction and production.

I didn't know that Dorothy Lamour began her career as a singer for a big band and later sang on radio for network shows. She was Miss New Orleans in 1931 and her heritage included being Spanish. Looking at her she reminds one of Katy Jurado and could have played roles for Latin characters. In this film I think she was especially effective when she played "herself", Mary the carny girl. The production numbers were excellent and indicated the direction dance numbers would be presented in the future. Don Ameche was excellent as always.

So this film was a very pleasant surprise.
