5.0 out of 5 stars Big Band-Aid, March 17, 2010
This review is from: Pot O' Gold (DVD)
This review is about, yes, A Big Band-Aid. A struggling Big Band needs help getting noticed and getting its big break. Jimmy Stewart (Jimmy) inherits his father's music store which is a hang-out for young, practicing, musicians. Jimmy plays a mean harmonica himself. His wealthy uncle who hosts a radio program called Harry's Happy Hour looks down his nose at the music store enterprise and offers to help Jimmy make it big if he will leave and join him. Harry hates all music and can't stand to even listen to it. Jimmy is forced to leave the foundering store and move into McCorkles' Boarding house. The beautiful McCorkle daughter (Paulette Goddard) is also the lead vocalist for the Big Band. When Jimmy and Uncle Harry both get thrown into the clinker through strange events, the uncle decides he needs to calm his nerves in Canada for a couple of weeks and leaves Jimmy in charge of his program. The whole group of musicians, Jimmy, and the McCorkles figure out a way to put the band on the air during the radio show and to even offer the listening audience a chance to win big money by spinning a wheel. The Band is a big success and gaining valuable sponsors for their air time, when Uncle Harry comes back from Canada, furious, as he did not want any music on his show. Uncle Harry has provided us with much slapstick comedy throughout the movie. The surprise in this movie (Jimmy S. is ALWAYS good) is the array of wonderful song and dance numbers and that Big Band sound. The song and dance routine in the jail cell, is very good. The "Knife Fork and Spoon" routine at the dining table in McCorkles' Boarding House is a work of genius, and the Rhumba numbers are glamour personified. After many spats between Jimmy and Miss McCorkle, love wins out and everyone is happy. A great movie made better by the song and dance extravaganza.
