Is shot through with delicious mel ­ ody — and made almost, deliriously amusing by Fannie's well-known elownlngs. But Fannie Brice Is great not alone as the result of her clever and studied artistry — but by the fact that Into her songs she puts herself. The poignant tenderness of “ My Man. ” which has dimmed many an eye. I* caught magnifi ­ cently. And Fannie sings tho others — \I'm an Indian,\ “ Tho Spring Song.\ \If You Want tho Rainbow. You Must Have tho Rain,\ \Floradora Baby.\ “ Second Hand Rose\ and “ I'd Rather Be Blue Thinking of You. Than Hap ­ py With Somebody Else.\ And she 1 gives the uproarious recitation. “Mrs. Cohn at the Beach.\ The story of the play, which wan written by Mark Canfield and adapted for the screen by Robert Lord.
