I am not too sure about this film, Ginger Rogers was the best thing in it, apart from Lucille Ball's brief appearance as her usual wisecracking self. Douglas Fairbanks wasn't a good enough actor to give his part any believabilty. He didn't strike me as the redcoat kind of fellow in a holiday camp in the woods. And the romance is so so. Maybe I should watch it again to see if my first impression was right.

Ginger and Doug Make It Fun 3 Sept. 2009
By Bobby Underwood - Published on
Format: DVD
This wonderful RKO film from producer Pandro S. Berman has a sweetness and sense of charm only films from the 1930's posessed. Perhaps because it was a lesser production shoved between RKO's new screen team of Ginger Rogers and Fred Astaire this warm and enjoyable film hasn't gotten the attention it deserves. Ginger's fans, however, have always been aware of its existence.

Ginger is both lovely and endearing as Teddy, a young typist who laments she must work 50 weeks out of the year just to enjoy looking at the moon for two. It's exactly what she intends to do when she heads to the Catskills for vacation with a sharp outfit and nifty new hat.

Plot takes a back seat to enjoyment as director Alfred Santell lets the romance and humor unfold in a leisurely manner. It is not slow, however, and thanks to those great RKO sets and a nice score from Roy Webb everything is just right. Perhaps with a different cast this would be forgettable, but the two leads make it more than it has any right to be.

Douglas Fairbanks Jr. is his usual charming self as Chick, a worker at the resort Teddy eventually falls for after a rocky start. Red Skelon provides the humor as Camp Kare-Free's social director. An excellent supporting cast including Peggy Conklin, Eve Arden, Donald Meek, Lee Bowman, Lucille Ball, and Jack Carson as Teddy's ex-boyfriend.

Rogers is terrific here as a nice working girl who would rather play backgammon than fool around, at least until she gets Chick to wise up and realize love is more important than money. This is a nice find for Ginger's many fans who will enjoy watching her in this humorous romance from the mid-1930's. Skelton is actually billed here as Richard! A must own for Ginger's fans.

Summer love 20 Oct. 2014
By victrola - Published on
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Light and breezy, Ginger Rogers and Doug Fairbanks Jr. deliver in this charming little film about an attractive girl getting away from the hot city and workaday 9 to 5 routine to spend several weeks at a summer camp full of outdoor activities. Doulas Fairbanks is one of the camp waiters expected to entertain the female visitors when he isn't serving up the meals. I love the scene where Ginger and Buzzy ( Lee Bowman) are playing Backgammon in his cabin and Douglas Fairbanks bursts through the door like an
Action Figure expecting to find Ginger and Buzzy locked in an embrace! Very funny. Look for some stars as characters such as Red Skelton (as the camp clown) and Eve Arden and Lucille Ball as two of Ginger's cabin buddies. Fast moving and very entertaining film.

Not one of her best. 30 Sept. 2010
By CelticWomanFanPiano - Published on
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
I'm a fan of Ginger Rogers which was my main motive in buying this film. And while some of the archive movies of hers that I've bought have been excellent, this one fell short. It centers around professional girls going to a summer camp and finding romance while they are there. Unfortunately, the guy Ginger Rogers is paired up with isn't likeable. Which is the main flaw of the film. Ginger's acting is hilarious and well done as usual. But the fellow is a down on his luck attorney (it is during the Depression era) and he asks Ginger to basically shack up with him rather than get married. She gets upset over that lackluster type of proposal, and rightfully so. With the end result being that he finally overcomes his concern about money and gives her a full respectable proposal. I sat throught his film because I'm a fan of Ginger Rogers, but I don't really recommend the movie based off of its own merit.

Good romance 7 Feb. 2015
By R. Ginocchio - Published on
Format: DVD
This is a pretty good little film, but don't use the cover as a guide. It is not really a comedy, it is more a romance film with some funny moments. There are nice little surprises like usual second banana Lee Bowman as the cad and early Lucille Ball and Jack Carson in support roles. The one miss is the early scenes of Red Skelton who would go on to much funnier material in coming films. Ginger & Fairbanks make a nice pair though and if you like old romantic comedies, you'll like this one.
I felt that it wasn't the greatest movie. It is worth seeing at least once ... 29 July 2014

I'm a big fan of Ginger Rogers, and thought that she did well in this, however, I felt that it wasn't the greatest movie. It is worth seeing at least once for Ginger Rogers.
