Oscar Movies: You’re a Sweetheart (1937)


This mediocre musical comedy, directed by David Butler, stars George Murphy as a producer who goes out of his way to promote a Broadway show and in the process falls for leading lady Alice Faye.

The secondary cast includes Andy Devine, William Gargan, Charles Winninger, and Donald Meek.

The title song, by Harold Adamson and Jimmy McHugh, is pleasant.
