An under appreciated sweet movie
17 January 2002 | by georgeeliotSee all my reviews

A much better film than Leonard Maltin could appreciate. Rudy Vallee and Ann Dvorak are excellent. Among the good songs is Ev'ry Day, a real nice one. The finale, Fare Thee Well Annabelle, is a showstopper. Seeing Helen Morgan is a bonus. All in all, a sweet movie.
