simplistic, though aptly acted and directed. Like many features of the day, it was merely a showcase for some big band numbers and musical set pieces. Songs include: "Mary Lou" (J.R. Robinson, Abe Lyman, George Waggner), "Don't Mind My Troubles," "I'm Sorry I Didn't Say I'm Sorry" (Allan Roberts,

Lester Lee), "That's Good Enough for Me," "Wasn't It Swell Last Night?" (Roberts, Doris Fisher), "Carle's Boogie" (Frankie Carle), "Learning to Speak English" (Facundo Rivero, Ben Blossner).
