Then, at a unique reception at City Hall, the Mayor gives Madame Beverly the key to the city, and they reprise the three songs. Written by

Innocent and charming enough one-reeler has the Mayor (June Allyson) having an all girl day and making every government position help by a lady. What do they do with it? We get several music numbers as the ladies sing and dance for nine-minutes. There's not too much to this film plot wise but it's still pretty entertaining as the short runs by very quickly and has some good music as well. The highlight, and what's going to bring people in, is Allyson who really gets to shine here. Her voice is perfect and the songs suit her quite well. She has a certain charm and innocence that really works well here and she's certainly tthe magic to the film. Fans of hers will want to check this out and if you don't know who she is, this here will leave an impression on you.
