Once more George White presents himself in his very own conception of a film Scandals, the second of the series. Once more it is dull entertainment. Trouble is largely traceable directly to White.

From only one standpoint is the film worthy top-screen entertainment and that is the songs [by Jack Yellen, Cliff Friend, Joseph Meyer, additional lyrics by Herb Magidson]. There are six, two of them real outstanders from a tune standpoint, but all tops on lyrics. Even these numbers, however, are wasted because of poor staging [by White].

Cast is big and studded with featured players, many of them wasted. Most of the work is left to James Dunn and Alice Faye as the boy and girl. They’re in a small town show in Georgia when White catches them. He brings ’em to New York and stars ’em immediately. Then follows the usual back-stage filmusical story. Inflated egos, pouting, quarrels, the kids leave the show. Girl’s aunt from down Georgia way comes to catch the show, White digs them up; they’ve learned their lesson; all is well.
