Crazy and Crazier, Part 2 — 6 Comments

  1. Jim, sorry to have bounced around some in my attempt to catch up with your awesome blog post about GIRL CRAZY, but I finally caught up with Part 2. I can readily understand why it didn't set the box office on fire, but I enjoyed your detailed post explaining what went wrong. 🙂 You deserve some kind of reward for the research alone! Great job!

  2. Kevin, I agree about Dorothy Lee: a real cutie. Not well served in Girl Crazy, though; I had trouble finding a good frame-cap for her because they shot so much of her role with her back to the camera.

  3. I've never seen this one. Despite what you wrote, Jim, I'm still curious about it and will try to catch it on its next appearance on TCM.

    I'm of mixed minds on W&W. I'm not particularly fond of them, but I like their movies, mainly because I like 1930s comedies.

    So I watch, and enjoy, titles like "Kentucky Kernels" and (my favorite of those I've seen) "Hips, Hips Hooray." I guess you can I say I like their movies in spite of them, not because of them.

    Besides, Dorothy Lee was a real cutie, and a very appealing screen presence.

  4. Wheeler and Woolsey good names
    to remember not to remember.

  5. An appropriate response, CW, but I hope you at least stuck with it through "I Got Rhythm". "You've Got What Gets Me" also perks things up a little — except for that stupid wishing well. It's like a dead elephant on the set.

  6. I saw some of the movie once. I wasn't expecting much, but the opening number got my hopes up. My hopes were then dashed, although I am a fan of Mitzi Green. (One of my sisters is a major Wheeler & Woolsey fan. Sometimes they work for me and sometimes they don't.)

    I didn't have the guts to stick with the picture all the way through. it made me sad.
