so so typical musical show....
Dennis Morgan stars in this color (Technicolor !) thang with Virginia Mayo. Big Yawn. Lots of musical numbers that don't really have anything to do with the plot, but give the stars a platform. The only good thing about this film is that Sandor Sakall is in here, for comic relief. (he only worked a couple more years after this one... died in 1954.) The paper thin plot here is that the girls need to find money to help Uncle Felix (Sakall) in Vegas, so they bring rich guy "Ted" along (Gene Nelson). Mayo, Lucille Norman, and Virginia Gibson are "The Dillon Sisters". There's an operatic version of "With a Song in My Heart".... too bad they couldn't do a fun, contemporary version. I thought the windows were going to shatter. They really rely on Sakall to carry this thing, but the script, the acting, and the direction are so lame it just kind of bumbles along. Not one of the better projects from Warner Brothers. One entertaining number where the trumpet player doubles as the dance partner. Directed by David Butler.. started in silents. Moved to directing television a couple years after this one. According to IMDb, he had played both a northern soldier AND a southern soldier in Griffith's Birth of a Nation ! This one is okay, but there are so many better films to watch.
