Inane story but great music and one of the few chances to see Mary Martin in a lead film role.

Being a jazz and blues fan, I found the music to be great. Movie is not a history of the blues but a simple story with a simple yet nice tribute at the end. Based on movies made during this time period.

pretty enjoyable film and an unfortunately forgotten treasure in the Bing Crosby library. well-written in typical 30s and 40s musical comedy style. entertaining characters, fun story, and some great early jazz/blues music.

Outstanding blues music and some great musical numbers make this classic a definite winner. Bing Crosby is in great form, the supporting cast is great. Eddie Rochester Anderson steals the show, as he often does. Good cinematography and an outstanding score.
