Where was he during the raising of his granddaughter? Was this review helpful to you?
Crosby has a couple of songs that will be reprised into fair popularity Hers really is an exceptional performance for a youngster, skirting the perils of bathos in her tender scenes and playing her rebellious ones with comic impertinence. Crosby is as good-natured as ever and that Miss Evans is so attractive a social worker that we are tempted to apply for relief and be investigated, the chief honors properly belong to little Miss Fellows.
Not as an eccentric musician, but as a Negro comedian he suggests possibilities. Were I Hepburn, Gxl wouldn't let him near her, but if that's the case, how did they become reconciled by the end? Katharine Hepburn plays a woman who was a bright, curious child whose father stymied that curiosity because she was "just a girl".
Also infuriating is the handling of the character of the father, who is strict and regimented at the youngsr of the film and is reduced to being a near-weeping milksop, comforted by and comforting his loving daughter, near the end. It makes no sense.
There's wonderful hypocrisy at work in Hepburn's character, but the film absolutely fails in addressing the issue. He toots his solo horn to a nice individual score, plus his band chores.
Reception[ edit ] Frank S. Later in life, Hepburn's illegitimate daughter, whom she aa as her niece, is a bright, curious child, whose curiosity Hepburn stymies whenever said curiosity would reveal her illegitimacy.
Best individual impression is by Louis Armstrong, Negro cornetist and hi-de-ho expert.
