    Ann Sothern was simply one of the most talented stars of old Hollywood! Her beautiful soprano voice is perfection. Her timing as an actress is superb - Ms. Sothern knew how to deliver lines. Of course, her stunning beauty shines from the silver screen. She is deftly supported in this film by Jack Carson (a real hunk and a talented one), Robert Alda and that little dynamo, Robert Ellis!! I loved this film! It is interesting to note that the director, James V. Kern, went on to direct the legendary Sothern in her hit TV show, The Ann Sothern Show. Be sure to see Ann Sothern in the Oscar winning A LETTER TO THREE WIVES and in her final Oscar nominated performance in THE WHALES OF AUGUST(with Bette Davis, Lillian Gish and Vincent Price).

    Either way, Thyme or time, judging by above reviews this film has power of time. I loved reading the response of the people who lived the period of the time and vaudeville. Relive the past with black and white

  • Family Movie , Family Theme.

    Watched during Ann Southern month on TCM. I feel we desperately need a lot more television that families and intergenerational audiences can view together and discuss. This one sure fits that Bill! Not my favorite Ann Southern movie or Jack Carson but still worthy of viewing. Lots of room for discussions on staying in school verses working at a young age if the child has a talent. Discussions about labor laws. We have always watched television with the children regardless of the program and not banned anything as long as we could talk about what was right and what was amiss with the program. Still I found the plot predictable and it did not hold my attention. I appreciate the programming and will always look for quality. Miss Southern and Mr. Carson as well as the other acters live up to their usual high quality.

  • So sorry!!

    I had wanted to see this film. Unfortunately, I had cataract surgery that morning. Please, please, would you please show this film again? I believe I will really enjoy this classic. Thank you so much TCM, for blessing us with so many beautiful and irreplaceable gems in film.

  • This Film Inspired Me!

    I was about eight years old when I saw this film in the theater. I think I sat through it about four times. I was the same age as the kid who saves his parents' vaudeville act.That was when I knew I would never be happy doing anything else but being in the business of show.I'm retired now, but during my acting career, I appeared on stage, on TV (soaps), and stopped counting after working on 125 feature films...and I defy you to find me in more than a dozen of them. But I had a great time and met some terrific people, many of whom I had admired all my life.If you haven't seen it, don't miss APRIL SHOWERS the next time it's scheduled on TCM! The song "April Showers" was one of the first songs that I couldn't get out of my head - especially after hearing Al Jolson sing it in The Jolson Story, another great film you can see on TCM.

  • Refeshingly enjoyable film

    Step back into a bygone era with this delightful film. Great performance by the leading stars. Nice story, music, and just a step back into time.
