This is really just another GOLDDIGGERS film without the charm or innocence of the original pictures and with Mayo, Norman, and Gibson as Las Vegas rather than Broadway hopefuls. Starting off in Los Angeles, the girls listen as Mayo gives them a pep talk on how to find a rich guy. Buoyed

by her speech, they head off for that gambling town and end up in a hotel run by Sakall. He's just about broke, having made some poor gambling decisions. Morgan plays a disguised millionaire who goes for Norman. When his banking cousin from Boston (Conway) arrives on the scene, his plot to win

Norman is nearly ruined, but all is righted in the end. It's routine, but competently acted and efficiently directed. The songs provide some fun, although numbers like "Tip-Toe through the Tulips" and "With a Song in My Heart" hardly seem like Vegas material. The songs are "Painting the Clouds

with Sunshine," "Tip-Toe through the Tulips" (Al Dubin, Joe Burke), "Vienna Dreams" (Irving Caesar, Rudolf Sieczy), "With a Song in My Heart" (Richard Rodgers, Lorenz Hart), "Birth of the Blues" (Buddy DeSylva, Lew Brown, Ray Henderson), "You're My Everything" (Harry Warren, Mort Dixon),

"Jealousy" (Vera Bloom, Jacob Gabe), "Man Is a Necessary Evil," "Mambo Man" (Jack Elliott, Sonny Burke).
