Jimmy Roosevelt threw Paulette Goddard and the entire Heidt Brigade into the pot with Jimmy Stewart, and the product is not gold but unpalatable musical hash. Stewart remains the easy-going, honest boy from the sticks who migrates to the big city. The heavy is his grump uncle who wants Irish Mary Gordon's property. Although he has to plaster his uncle with a rotten tomato and give away a thousand dollars over the radio to do it, Stewart finally effects the obvious Anschluss. Ma gets the house and Jimmy gets Paulette.
Miss Goddard doesn't dance like Rogers, but she looks exceedingly pretty, while Stewart adequately mugs his way through a role he has played in a dozen films.
