Sing and Like It ★★ 1934

Goofy farce involving a tone-deaf songbird and a love-struck mobster boss. Annie Snodgrass (Pitts) has a voice that could make dogs howl, but moony-eyed gangster Fenny (Pendleton) hears it differently. He's going to make her a star, even threatening a top music critic at gunpoint to give her a glowing review. 72m/B VHS . Zasu Pitts, Pert Kelton, Edward Everett Horton, Nat Pendleton, Ned Sparks; D: William A. Seiter; W: Marion Dix, Laird Doyle.
