Durbin stars as a small-town youngster who heads for the Big Apple and becomes an usherette at the Buckingham, a fictionalized version of Radio City Music Hall. It is here that she gets involved with Menjou, a pushy millionaire, and Drake, an unsuccessful lawyer. She and Drake eventually
fall in love, and she sneakily tries to get her beau a job in Menjou's meat-packing house. Bendix, in a supporting role as a waiter, delivers his usual outstanding performance. Durbin delivers four tunes; "It's Dreamtime," "Cobbleskill School Song" (Jack Brooks, Walter Schumann), "Granada"
(Augustin Lara, English lyrics Dorothy Dodd), "Sari Waltz" (C.C.S. Cushman, E.P. Heath, Emmerich Kalman). A remake of the 1935 Margaret Sullavan vehicle THE GOOD FAIRY, which was also penned by this film's writer, Sturges, who, unfortunately, added nothing new to this version.
