why is ted lewis top billed
30 March 2007 | by malcolmgswSee all my reviews

Ted Lewis is top billed but does not appear till almost half of the film has elapsed.The actors with most screen time are Ted Healey and Nat Pendelton.Maybe MGM couldn't sell the film on their names alone.The film also features a very pleasing singer,Harry Stockwell,who is the male lead.He sings a number of very enjoyable songs most notably "Roll Along Prarie Moon".Unfortrunately he has one major problem,he is not photogenic.It is little surprise that his screen career seems to have been rather short.The plot such as it is is wafer thin and there is in fact virtually no story till the last half of the film.Nevertheless it is very entertaining particularly Billy Gilbert's sneezing act
