    Frances Langford charms and sings her way through this unfortunately obscure little thriller. Murder and romance are the order of the day as suave Kent Taylor is on the track of a supposed deceased mobster. He is side tracked by the beautiful and steamy songstress Beth Cornell (Frances Langford). One thing I've noticed about Frances Langford's love interests in her films is that seem to be genuinely in love with her! No acting here, they are simply lost in her spell. Even the suave rake, Kent Taylor has that deer in the headlights look when he first sees Frances. Frances is singing the films best song at the time, 'There goes my romance' Who wouldn't fall for that Langford smile and sultry voice? After they meet, they go out on the porch and Taylor gives Frances a line that is as subtle as a right hook. But she stands there looking up at him with such an expression of love and wonder that it is almost too wonderful to take in. All the while the small band is playng the melody of 'There goes my romance'. This a tremendously played scene by both Frances and Kent Taylor. ALthough as I said before, I don't think Taylor was acting. Is it any wonder that millions of GI's fell in love with Frances Langford? Later on she sings the upbeat tune 'Got Love' The ending words are "Oh boy, I got joy..., I got love" Words could not possibly tell how she sings that last word...love. You have never heard it sound so real, so authentic. Frances had probably the most expressive voice and way of singing I've ever heard. She is a genius! In an era of so many not just stars but superstars, Frances Langford leads the pack. This is a good movie but with Frances Langford in it, it becomes a great movie! By all means see it if you can, lobby for its commercial DVD release. Its a movie NOT to be missed!
