Steve D Better on paper than in practice. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 06/09/23 Full Review Audience Member I sold this film to myself as simply a musical with W.C. Fields and Joan Bennett in it, and it worked for me in that regard. Worth a watch if you're intrigued by bizarrely-plotted musical comedies from the 30's. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/06/23 Full Review Audience Member Enjoyable Paramount musical with funny W.C. Fields and crooner Bing Crosby singing two big Rodgers & Hart hits: "Soon" and "Easy to Remember (and So Hard to Forget)". Great fun. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/27/23 Full Review Audience Member FUN MUSICAL COMEDY, GREAT CAST. WC FIELDS IS UNFORGETTABLE IN THE POKER SCENE. A TRUE CLASSIC. THE RIVERBOAT SETTING IS A PLUS. GOOD SONGS, FUN MOVIE. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/30/23 Full Review Read all reviews
