Trivia

While not usually included in listings of the several Paramount Pictures sold to United Artists in 1942-43, the fact that Paramount logos appear on the film's leaders, and original stills bear a Paramount production number (number 1955), this movie clearly was originally a Paramount production.

Pop Sherman
25 January 2013 | by bobliptonSee all my reviews

Harry "Pop" Sherman spent most of his career producing superior B westerns and was best known for creating and running for several years the Hopalong Cassidy franchise. With this movie he made a bid for the big time and was rewarded with a couple of Oscar nominations, but the total effect, looked at from seventy years later, is an entertaining picture that is, nonetheless, a high-class B picture.

This movie features several Warner Brothers people, both in front of and behind the camera, all trying for their big break, but once you get past the charity party sequence, there is little energy in the performances. Perhaps that is why the camera keeps moving constantly.
