No, No, Nanette (1940)

3/5 (1)

“No, No, Nanette” is a musical film released in 1940, directed by Herbert Wilcox and starring Anna Neagle, Richard Carlson, and Victor Mature.

The story follows a wealthy businessman named Jimmy Smith (Richard Carlson), who is married to his socialite wife, Sue (Helen Broderick). In order to dispel rumors of his infidelity, Jimmy agrees to fund a Broadway show produced by his young ward, Nanette (Anna Neagle).

As the production gets underway, Jimmy finds himself drawn to Nanette, and the two begin a flirtatious romance. Meanwhile, Nanette’s own romantic entanglements with three men – Tom (Victor Mature), Billy (Roland Young), and Larry (Billy Gilbert) – complicate matters even further.

Through a series of misunderstandings and comedic mishaps, the characters eventually find themselves in a series of hilariously improbable situations, including a chase through a hotel lobby and a frantic search for a lost dog.

Overall, “No, No, Nanette” is a lighthearted and entertaining musical that features a number of catchy songs and memorable dance sequences. Its themes of love, romance, and mistaken identity make it a classic example of the screwball comedy genre.
