'In Your Face'
- Dios Santiago
I had never heard of this band leader, but I actually enjoyed the movie and the music. It is a tipical genre of those pre-WWII fun films. Even so it is well paced with no superflous or loose ends. It is a straight 'in your face' story, and more entertaining than other silly/funny romantic movies where they used big name stars to push the story.

Most people today have never heard of Kay Kyser's band, but in their day they were very famous, especially Ginny Simms the female lead singer, her voice range was superb and she went on to make some great movies.
Kay Kyser inspired me to go to college
Genny and Harry had some of the best duets on screen (don't forget Ish!). I want to watch over and over again but there's no dvd :(.
Great Fun Movie - That's Right!

Kay Kyser and his band seem to be having infectious fun making this picture. I laughed out loud while watching it on TV. How often do you do that? Ginny Simms is dynamite, by the way.
Kyser Band's first is one of its best!

THAT'S RIGHT, YOU'RE WRONG should be part of a TCM DVD collection featuring some of this bandleader's 7 films. The first 3 (THAT'S RIGHT YOU'RE WRONG, YOU'LL FIND OUT(w/ Karloff, Lugosi and Lorre)and PLAYMATES (w/ John Barrymore)would be great selections since they were all directed by veteran director David Butler for RKO. Kyser did 5 RKO features before moving to MGM and Columbia for his remaining two.As for THAT'S RIGHT, It's probably my favorite Kyser film, also being the first for the band and their bespectacled leader. Lucille Ball plays the egotistical (but funny) ingenue, and Adolphe Menjou as the harried producer who doesnt want Kyser for a picture because he's not the 'romantic type', even though his radio show success proves the public wants to see him and the band in a movie. This mirrors real life, as Kyser's band (featuring Ginny Simms, Ish Kabibble, Harry Babbitt and Sully Mason)were unbelievably popular during the late 30s to the late 40s, often outgrossing the bands of Glenn Miller and Benny Goodman. The songs are great- THE ANSWER IS LOVE, FIT TO BE TIED, CHATTERBOX. One called SCATTERBRAIN was cut from the film. Sharp eyed viewers will spot Hedda Hopper in a small role. Louella Parsons and Ed Sullivan were included in the script (I own the director's copy, as I'm a Kyser 'kollector'), but are not in the finished cut. For everything 'Kyser' go to my kaykyser.net website. I'm currently producing/writing a 1 hr documentary of this great performer, who has been somewhat forgotten due to his self-imposed 'disappearance' from Show biz in the early 50s. He did okay later- he became the President of the Worldwide Church of Christian Science! If you dont think this film is worth your time, THAT'S RIGHT, YOU'RE WRONG!

Kay Kaiser and cast were so natural and appeared to be having a lot of fun making a film that was obviously meant to be an entertaining fantasy. It was a fast paced comedy with excellent musical peformances by people who were actually talented, expecially the young lady who sang "I'm fit to be tied." That song, by the way was terrific sung by a talent with excellent range. We just loved the entire film and have told many of our friends who have never heard of it. We would love to see it aired again.
