Based on the 1925 hit Broadway musical, this charming musical develops on the simplest plot lines. Littlefield is a Bible salesman who innocently helps three different women in trouble. He finds himself in troubles of his own when the three simultaneously arrive at his Atlantic City
cottage. The farce is humorous in a naive way. The cast certainly is not the greatest for the material--Littlefield takes time to warm up, and Gray is too young to be believed as the love interest--but somehow they manage to pull it off. There are two color production numbers in this otherwise
black-and-white film, the second taking up the final third of the film. This version accurately translates the musical to film. The movie contains some delightful songs: "Dance of the Wooden Shoes" (Ned Washington, Herb Magidson, Michael Cleary), "As Long as I'm With You" (Grant Clarke, Harry
Akst), "King of the Air," "No, No Nanette," "Dancing to Heaven" (Al Bryan, Ed Ward), "Tea for Two," and "I Want to be Happy" (Vincent Youmans, Irving Caesar).
