Fun Musical With Lovely Alice White
9 February 2014 | by classichollywoodbeautiesSee all my reviews

This is a really fun little musical from 1935. The plot centers around a rich wannabe songwriter Johnny (Johnny Downs) who wants to put on a musical show with singer June (Betty Burgess) who is working at the hotel Coronado in California. They fall in love but Johnny's father is against their romance. Flapper star Alice White has a supporting role as June's sister who married a marine played by Jack Haley. There are some laughs and a lot of great songs. Alice White is beautiful and gives a wonderful performance. Betty Burgess is a terrific singer and actress who unfortunately didn't make many more films. Jack Haley is a always a lot of fun to watch and he gets to show off his singing skills too. Leon Errol is very funny as Alice White's domineering father and Andy Devine is great as Jack Haley's marine buddy.
