Greatv rare "B" musical...except NO KIRBY GRANT
12 September 2009 | by buckcodySee all my reviews

This is a great Columbia piece from the era. Ellen Drew is as pretty as ever and delivers a good performance along with co star Robert Stanton, now here is a problem, let me explain. Kirby Grant was given the name Robert Stanton early in his career and so was Bob Haymes, brother of Dick. This is not Kirby Grant in this film as is listed in the credits. This is Bob Haymes. By this time Grant has taken his own name for his roles where Haymes was still using the AKA.Furthermore Grant was not employed by Columbia he was at Universal. A very confusing situation indeed. Just check the film and compare it to other Grant films and Haymes films and you will see that it is definitely Bob Haymes. However, aside from this mistake, this is a must see for all Drew fans and Musical fans of the genre. A very hard to find film which has never aired on current or past TV in the last 20 years to my knowledge anyway. I have a copy from 16mm on DVD and enjoyed it.
