Impressionist Dean Murphy, impersonating Joe E. Brown, is in a barnyard sketch with Nancy Walker. His armpit sweat varies from shot to shot - very wet, a couple smalls spots, dry and wet again. See more »
This is an excellent movie if you like 40s musicals.
Ginny Simms was at her best in acting and at the height of her beauty. The movie is worth watching just to see Ginny. Tommy Dorsey was great as usual, wish he had played more tunes. George Murphy, Ben Blue, Rochester, Lena Horne, Nancy Walker all helped make the movie very enjoyable.
