Worth it for Daniels and Laine
17 December 2003 | by grammy3See all my reviews

People who walked into this movie never having heard of Billy Daniels became instant fans. His joyous, dynamic renditions, accompanied by plenty of flashy body english, of "Deed I Do" and "That Old Black Magic" had much to do with his subsequent stardom. Abetting that excitement was his pianist-backup singer Benny Payne, who added humor as well as music to the act. Frankie Laine shows why he's the star, especially in a nicely informal rendition of "Georgia On My Mind". The Mills Brothers, as usual, are pleasant to listen to and watch. Jerome Courtland, the leading man, has no chance to do anything with the limp script, but he's boyishly engaging, and has a terrific voice. Lola Albright is likeable and very, very pretty. Too bad it's almost impossible to find this on videotape, and perhaps impossible to find with a good-quality print. Columbia Pictures, are you listening?
