Sweet and Low-Down ★★★

Leading man James Cardwell, while attractive, has all the magnetism of a dead battery but both Linda Darnell and Lynn Bari make up for him somewhat with their appealing presences.

What makes up for the lackluster lead is the fact that the film is crammed with great music played by Benny Goodman and his Orchestra. Plus you get Jack Oakie and Allyn Joslyn doing their wisecracking best on the sidelines.
