Good Natured early Sirk
The second part of Sirk's "Americana" trilogy after "Has Anybody Seen My Gal" and before "Take Me To Town". Like its predecessor, there is a strong critical streak; this time its of political corruption, but the film is imbued with tremendous affection for its characters delightfully played by Dan Dailey, Scatman Crothers and child actor Chet Allen.

The musical numbers are decidedly second rate and add little to the film as a whole. Nothing in this modest, very light weight film portends the great melodramas that Sirk would make a few years on.

Its very easy and pleasant viewing but only of real interest to Sirk enthusiasts.
