A misfired attempt at an all-star comedy musical, which would show off New York City's Radio City Music Hall. Unfortunately the results were less than toe-tapping and side-splitting. Berle and Oakie play a pair of down-and-out songwriters desperate for new material. They soon discover an

out-of-towner, Burns, who sings brilliant, catchy tunes in his sleep. Oakie and Berle, of course, are at the poor slob's bedside jotting down the tunes and making a decent buck off of them. As it turns out, their biggest problem is how to keep Burns asleep most of the time. The lackluster musical

numbers staged from these dream tunes had trouble keeping audiences attentive in 1938. Ironically, when the film opened, it played at the Globe Theater in New York, not Radio City Music Hall. Songs include: "Goodnight Angel" (sung by Baker), "Speak Your Heart" (sung by Froman), "Take a Tip from

the Tulip" (sung by Burns), "I'm Taking a Shine to You" (sung by Baker), "There's a New Moon over the Old Mill" (sung by Burns), "Love, Honor and Oh Baby," "Why Must I Love You," "Morning Glories in the Moonlight," "You're the Apple of My Eye," "Swinging in the Corn" (Allie Wrubel, Herb

Magidson).
