Ignore the sappy plot but enjoy the musical productions, especially Faye and the Ritz Brothers (who dance bare feet in one of them!). Faye's character stands out and her voice is beautiful. Apparently, Irving Berlin preferred her above anyone else to introduce his songs.
The corns a mile high here and the print is in pretty terrible condition in parts but the songs are good and Cora Witherspoon scores strongly in her part. If you're watching this for Alice Faye though while she's okay in this she has been better and made far superior films to this.
