It's a Date

1940

William A. Seiter
Director

Mother and daughter vy for coveted stage roles, a businessman vys for their affections...

Light weight musical drama with the odd comedic interlude gives Francis and Durbin the opportunity to belt out a few numbers, the latter gives Ave Maria a good work out at the finale. A bit of business with Fritz Feld as a waiter who has been instructed to give Pidgeon an excuse to leave the restaurant, who then doesn't WANT to leave has popped up in other places, Coupling for example.

Film only released in Portugal on DVD.
