Story and characters are pretty lame but the songs, particularly the ones sung by the King Sisters, have a nice, 40s USO swing sound. Wish there were more of them and less Bert Lahr and Patsy Kelley (two annoying comics who think they're funnier than they are) to say nothing of the terminally forgettable Dorothy Lovett in the female lead role. However, young Barnaby Jones as a romantic song and dance man'll definitely bring a smile to the ol mug. Give it a C plus. P.S. If, as previous reviewer a. morris wrote, this movie is more fun than the Golden Globes after party then the chilling effect of the Me Too movement has already manifested itself.
hey buddy..long time.. glad to see ya.
more fun than a 2017 golden globes after party. not about a message. all about fun.
correction to swing it baby

I referred in my main review about a smoking hot steel guitar player. I said his name was Aldo Ray. I erred. The player is the stupendous Alvino Rey. He's a good Google. He invented the electric guitar and is the father of the pedal steel guitar. When I was a boy in the 50s he would come on TV and make a guitar talk with a human voice. He had a female hidden singing along with his licks and he would electronically blend the two. So he invented the Vocoder too! He's all over the movie and ended up marrying one of the foxes in the sister group.

Behind the comedy are some real hep cats.I had the sound off when I saw this guy wailing on a "Hawaiian" steel guitar, big band in the background. Turn the sound on. It was Aldo Rey smoking a steel, sometimes making sci fi type wild noises. Fastest damn song I ever huoid, as Bert Lahr starring would say.Jed Clampett Ebsen is in there with his looney dancing. Lots, LOTS, of female legs, gams. This one floozy was just flinging her dress up showing the whole goods! In 1942 that must of brought up a whoop in the theater. I mean hot dames singing real fast and busting moves.This is a maniac film. Definitely throw this one on DVD. That's how I ended up commenting. I was seeing if this thing is for sale. It's not as of June, 2014.out
This is one of my all time favorites. My son and I ran on to it one rainy Sunday afternoon and both of us laughed until we cried. My father used to talk about this movie when I was young and he would laugh just trying to describe it to me. I would love to have it as a part of my collection.
This Comedic Gem Needs to Be Released on DVD!!!!
