Eugene Palette's frog voice dominates this mediocre comedy
I bought a copy of this film to see Jack Haley, the man with the beautiful eyes and pretty face. Haley keeps getting mistaken for a criminal and is continually asked to take his pants down for a positive i.d. at the police station. Didn't see that coming! Rochelle Hudson does a bit of singing. I was more concerned about what would happen to Haley's pet rabbit Cactus (nothing bad happens to him) than about any of the characters.
Eugene Palette's unmistakable and unpleasant voice seemed to dominate the film. Haley didn't get a chance to shine. The comedy was weak and the story largely forgettable. Sorry for the downer of a review. I was hoping for more Jack Haley highlights.
