    This film has such subtext that it's truly a shame that it didn't dig deeper. A suicidal agent discovers a great singing talent only to almost destroy that young man. Pat O'Brien and James Melton, two polar opposites, are the distinguishing factors of this film.

    Again I'm out of synch with Leonard Maltin's critiques... I enjoyed this and thought it did its job of entertaining. My favorite bit is the talent show contestant who is told to 'Wait for television', 'Well how long will that be?', 'I dunno but you'll read about it in the newspaper'... this in 1935.

    I have to admit that I'd PVR'd/watched this initially since I'd thought it was a Busby Berkeley affair, with the usual trappings of the stellar repeat performers and great numbers. Turns out he'd had less to do with it than I'd hoped, but that's not entirely a bad thing, since it's more to do with opera than theatrical numbers. There is definitely his 'stamp' on the number/set present at the 'Sky Club', as well as the music in it; very reminiscent (the song, I mean) of 'Goldiggers of 1933', which I truly adore.Now. I just love, love, LOVE main player Pat O'Brien, and as far as I'm concerned, there is no 'bad acting' whenever he's involved. It wasn't a great role, by any stretch, but he did well in it, and was very believable as the shallow agent-turned-noble fellow. Plus, I really like the supporting players of 'Off-Key and Molly', played very adeptly by the always charming Frank McHugh and Marie Wilson, respectively. I'm largely unaware of the other actors; the singer 'Jan King' played by James Melton in particular. He had a gorgeous voice very much like Dick Powell, and was very tall, dark, and not half-bad looking. I can't imagine why he wasn't more of a threat in films than his filmography suggests.In any case, an okay way to kill some time; not a great, classic film, but not too bad. The singing was lovely, and there were some laughs....it was predictable as can be, of course. But if you're like me, and were hoping for the requisite Bus Berekely touch on his sweeping, kaleidoscopic, ambitious numbers with tons of people and catchy songs, you will likely be disappointed. I would truly rate this between 2.5 and 3, but gave it a little more for the fine performances with what they were given....and I do like Aida and Ave Maria, so there was that, as well...
