Another band-trying-to-make-good plotline comes alive when Crosby and Martin sing; highlights are "Wait 'Til the Sun Shines, Nellie" and "The Waiter and the Porter and the Upstairs Maid."

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.

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

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.
