It's basically about thwarted love and a mix-up regarding the 'picture brides' of that time .... desperate girls looking for some Prince Valiant to rescue her [similar to e-mail chatrooms today I guess].
However, besides the ensuing tangle - her boyfriend's brother accidentally 'gets' her as a bride .... but do not despair - there are one or two reels left to unspool and resolve the mishap.
A Young JOE E. BROWN [looking somewhat like a minature Jim Carrey] serves up the yuks along with befused Zazu Pitts.
All in all - great fun and quite satisfying .... Miss MacDonald would go on to bigger and better things ... here she's just warming her toes!
Neat postscript - Tech credits receive billing, Set Designer [spectacular] and Costume Designer too .... Anna O'Neil.
The most disappointing aspects of the Kino Video release are the running time - only 67 minutes - and the black and white image throughout. The original print runs for 78 minutes, with the final scene in vivid (for the time) color. This uncut version with the color finale was recently shown on Turner Classic Movies. Dare we hope for a release of the complete original film?
Nelson Eddy during the 60 and 70's as her movies were continuously on television, and when they were, my mother had them on. So as a child i heard a angel sing, and
that angel once i grew up i found out it was Jeanette Mcdonald.
When i saw this movie, i was amazed, this is the movie i always wanted to see again,
and voila here it is. Take this movie with a grain of salt and you should enjoy it.
I found it great, except for the jealous lover....overdone or what...and thats what
i said to myself as a kid 40 years ago.
Anyway, glad they still have a print going around, and even if its not a gem, its
a very likable movie.

I only rented this to see Joe E Brown. His parts were, to me, the only thing that made this movie good. I wouldn't rent/watch it again.Published 2 days ago by Erica
OK. Has limitations of early photography. A little weak on script.Published 5 months ago by Amazon Customer
I was very surprised that there was not more singing, given that Jeanette McDonald was the lead, but it was actually kept to a tolerable level. Good story, great old film.Published 5 months ago by Jeannie M
This one is deceptive as I bought it assuming Joe . is the main character. WRONG !!! Joe E. Browns role is minimal and there is WAY too much music in this. Read morePublished 15 months ago by The Purple Heart
