Preston Sturges' smash stage comedy is well done in this film version, showcasing the talents of opera singer Pinza and the looks of Leigh. He plays, strangely enough, an opera singer, known not only for his lungs but also for his love for women. Leigh arrives on the scene straight off a

Mississippi farm. She has been infatuated with Pinza, and meets him just about the time he has been fighting with a publisher because Pinza has axed Robbins' singing career. Pinza and Leigh are forced to marry for convenience, but really want to make it an ideal marriage despite the conniving

efforts of Palmer, who once was a flame of Pinza's. All turns out right in the end for the rich opera star and simple farm girl. Some of the songs include: "Everything I Have Is Yours" (Harold Adamson, Burton Lane), "I'll See You in My Dreams" (Gus Kahn, Isham Jones).
