Any film with Bubbles Sakall in it is a joy to watch and this one is no exception. He is as charming as ever and you simply want to hug the man! The Technicolor here is beautiful and the actors are dressed for it with colorful costuming throughout. It's a simple story of two nightclub owners who like modern music but, unfortunately, open next door to a couple whose daughter is classically training her voice. The two neighbors bicker and the girl's manager, who wants to marry her, threatens to have the nightclub closed, as he has already done to other clubs which have tried to open in that location. Dennis Morgan's lovely voice and that of Martha Vickers bring a lot to the musical numbers in the film. Janis Page, as the love interest to the disinterested Jack Carson, brings the levity to the film. Lovely way to spend an afternoon and not feel you have wasted your time viewing a movie!
Decent formula musical of the time
- David Rafferty
Very familiar plot and cast, for the most part. I didn't appreciate that number with Jack Carson in Blackface, for no particular reason that I could figure out. Who was the trumpeter dubbing his playing? It sort of sounded like Harry James, but no mention in the credits here.
The Time, the Place and the Girl (1946)
- James Higgins
A minor but very charming musical comedy. The musical numbers are lively and entertaining. The song "A Gal in Calico" was nominated for a best song Academy Award. The leads are engaging, especially Dennis Morgan and Janice Paige. S.Z. Sakall is always a welcome member to a cast and he is terrific in this one. Great score and a nice production and creative costume design. Fun and very entertaining. Directed by David Butler.
