Editorial Reviews

Screen legends Bing Crosby and Carole Lombard join George Burns and Gracie Allen in the musical comedy We're Not Dressing. When the yacht of the rich and beautiful Doris Worthington (Lombard) is shipwrecked, the survivors find themselves stranded on a deserted tropical island. The tides soon turn as it becomes evident that the lowly deckhand Stephen Jones (Crosby) is the only one with any natural survival skills. As the romantic tension between Stephen and Doris grows, the passengers are faced with the dilemma of getting off the island. Also starring Ethel Merman, Ray Milland and Leon Errol, We're Not Dressing features Bing singing some of his most memorable songs, including "May I?" and "Love Thy Neighbor".

This product is manufactured on demand using DVD-R recordable media. Amazon.com's standard return policy will apply.

I remember first seeing this one as a kid and been on the prowl for it ever since.
For fans of Bing this is a must.
His voice is still new (1934), crisp and delightful.
Burns & Allen are up to thier usual madness.
An all around good film.
Basic plot: Carole is a spoiled rich girl with her posse on an ocean liner. Bing is a lowly cabin boy who runs into trouble with her (love that "smacking" scene). When the boat is shipwrecked they land on an island where Burns & Allen are horticulturists(!) and love blooms!
That's all I'll tell you!
Give it a try, you're sure to enjoy.

"We're Not Dressing", produced by Paramount in 1934 sadly seems to be a film that is largely forgotten today. Nevertheless it is a film which displays alot of important elements that later became the acknowledged "trademarks" of the performers involved in the production. Foremost here we see a very early example of Bing Crosby's relaxed crooning style of musical delivery that became his trademark in countless memorable film performances in the decades to come. Beautiful leading lady Carole Lombard was just starting to fully emerge as the glowing Paramount star beloved of film audiences around this time and "We're Not Dressing", gives her a wonderful character to work with in uppity society girl Doris Worthington who learns a lesson or two about humility while stranded on a desert island. Ethel Merman also displays her high voltage and totally arresting performing style in an energic supporting performance as Doris's man chasing sidekick Edith. The film despite it's obvious short falls compared to later big budgeted musicals is an enjoyable treat that is unique in it's teaming of two very different performers in Crosby and Lombard.
"We're Not Dressing", has a quite famous pedigree having been loosely based on the novel "The Admirable Chrichton", by James M. Barrie. It had already served as the source material for the legendary Gloria Swanson in one of her most famous roles in Cecil B. DeMille's production of "Male and Female" in 1919. This version while obviously accomodating the musical talents of Bing Crosby takes a far more lighthearted approach in telling the story of society heiress Doris Worthington who along with her friends and a deck hand from her yacht becomes marooned on a tropical island when her yacht sinks after hitting a reef.

WE'RE NOT DRESSING is a charming 1930s musical starring Bing Crosby, and is noteworthy for several songs, the legendary Broadway belter Ethel Merman and the comedic stylings of co-stars George Burns and Gracie Allen.
Bing Crosby plays Stephen Jones, a crooning deckhand of the yacht owned by charming society heiress Doris Worthington (Carole Lombard - MY MAN GODFREY, NOTHING SACRED). Also on board are Doris' best friend Edith (Broadway's Ethel Merman) and the continually-sloshed Hubert (Leon Errol). After Stephen and Doris clash several times during the voyage, he is fired, but not until a freak storm crashes the yacht and dumps all the occupants on a desert island. Also living on the island are George and Gracie (George Burns and Grace Allen, essentially playing themselves).
There are a few choice songs in this delightful musical, including "Love Thy Neighbor", "May I?", "Once in a Blue Moon" and "She Reminds Me of You". Ethel Merman also impresses with her infectious number "Spanish Custom".
A lovely little movie indeed.

MCA/Unicersal Clacssics have restored and re-released "We're Not Dressing" on home video. This movie falls under the Bing Crosby Collection.
Early Crosby croons several catchy tunes in this semi-musical at sea comedy / love story.
Summary - Crosby a crooner deck hand on a millionairesses (Lombard) yacht. Lombard (beautiful & funny) falls for Crosby but acts as the totally spoiled rich girl. As all 1930's musical comedies we have a great supporting cast to include; comedians - Leon Errol, George Burns & Gracie Allen, a very young singing Ethel Merman. A young Ray Milland trys to swoon Lombard. This funny crew ship wrecks on an island & Crosby becomes the "IN-Charge" go to guy. This is some funny stuff with catchy tunes to beat.
An original trailer is included. Enjoy this 1935 Hollywood Film with Crosby & Lombard.
