Quotes Stage Board Man : [after Hildegarde accidentally finds herself onstage during a dance ] I didn't know you had it in you, sister. User reviews 14 Review. Top review. A not real naughty girls, but nice little mixture of mystery, comedy and musical. Most of the earlier reviewers obviously did not like this one much, but I think it was actually a rather enjoyable movie, which mixed three very popular genres of that era: murder mystery, musical theater story and screwball comedy. No, of course it is far from being great, but it is an entertaining little whodunit.
The murder mystery part of the plot is nothing special, but it is fine, definitely better than the earlier Hildegarde Withers outing, Murder on the Blackboard, which, during the book-to-screenplay transfer lost all that made it originally good. The musical s never get center stage and honestly, aren't very good eitherbut the comedy works fine and the fast moving plot easily holds it all together. Pitts a lot more in the role.
As for the rest of the cast: they are doing OK, but they are nothing noteworthy, except maybe Tom Kennedy, who plays a bumbling police officer that hauntingly similar to his role in all those Torchy Blane movies.
Obviously it wasn't much of a success in its time either as it was the last of the series, which is too bad as I would definitely love to watch a few more films with witty ZaSu as the elderly hobby detective who solves the crimes instead of the grumpy inspector.
