Description: 2003 has been the greatest year for fresh vehicles ever. But I’m not interested in reliability, fuel consumption or even cup holders.

So I place the Bentley Continental GT head to head vs the Rolls Royce Phantom in a massive metal drag race. I pitch the Mitsubishi Evo VIII vs its old opponent the Subaru Imprezza Sti. I select the greatest street vehicle you can test on a track and the contenders are the Lotus Elise, the Vauxhall VX220 Turbo and the fresh TVR350C. There's a supercar showdown between the Pagani Zonda and the Koenigsegg. And I throw down the gauntlet to the Lamborghini Gallardo, the Aston Martin DB7 GT, the Porsche GT3 and many, many more. I also found time to place a fresh spin on the art of caravan towing - flipping one on to its roof and hooking it up to a super quick Overfinch Range Rover. In fact, I had so much fun...I’m still smiling now. I'm sure you will too.

Okay, so Brown and Carney WEREN'T Abbott and Costello. Nevertheless, their pictures are painless romps directed for max speed by Leslie (FIREMAN, SAVE MY CHILD) Goodwins. In RADIO STARS ON PARADE, the men are ably assisted by lilting Frances Langford and a terrific helping cast. But the true surprise is Ralph Edwards testing himself in a couple of TRUTH OR CONSEQUENCES setpieces. Edwards was a masterful straight boy and he does some nice speed talk and double talk. Rufe Davis (PETTICOAT JUNCTION) also gets a possibility to present off, singing "I'm the Sound Results Man." Of course, there's the obligatory chase through the radio studio and the gags are well-paced if somewhat obvious. I should think of far worse methods to spend 70 minutes.
The game promises more than it can deliver, that's for sure. You receive Don Wilson, Ralph Edwards and his 'Truth or Consequences', and some of the cast of 'Dick Tracy' and that's about it. I guess Skinnay Ennis qualifies since he was Bob Hope's radio present band leader and he has a fairly prominent role here. Then there is the mediocre manufactured-by-RKO comedy squad of Brown and Carney leading the cast. It's not that they're terrible together or apart, but the stale gags and lines they're given to deliver sink them in each movie, including this one. Ostensibly, these two were place together by RKO in an effort to compete with the success of Abbott & Costello. But Brown and Carney are more like Olsen & Johnson than A & C, not that it's a terrible thing. They're energetic and test hard, but it's sad to watch them done-in by such wheezy comic material. And having Sheldon Leonard as the terrible guy (a Chicago mobster who, with his two henchmen, goes to Los Angeles to receive back Frances Langford who is in love with a serviceman) is a nice choice, yet even he isn't trying to hard, and when the cops haul him off in the end he looks almost thankful that his job on this movie is over. The storyline is negligible: Langford leaves Leonard's club for a possibility to work in radio in Los Angeles AND meet up with her beloved serviceman; a decision that infuriates Leonard who does whatever he can to stop her. Brown and Carney are cut-rate entertainers looking for work who take over their agent's office when the weasel runs out on them. They receive Langford work with Skinnay Ennis' band via assistance by genial, rotund Don Wilson. Leonard appears and tries to squash the gig and complications ensue. It's all very mild and inoffensive, and at 69 minutes, not time consuming. RKO was too cheap to receive some fresh songs so they have Langford and others sing and enjoy older material, but Langford singing 'That Old Black Magic' is probably better than her doing some, probably weak, fresh tune written for the film. And if you miss the old 'Truth or Consequences' with Edwards this movie will give you your fill. If you're looking for an undiscovered filmic gem..... hold looking.
Radio Stars on Parade amounts to a misleading title. It could be Radio Star on Parade since Ralph Edwards is the only weekly star getting extended time. Of course, there's also the terrific Frances Langford who gets to croon a several tunes that almost makes the 60-minutes worthwhile. Then there's Brown & Carney, a sub-3 Stooges knock-about act that quickly gets tiresome. They carry the plot as ersatz talent agents trying to receive Langford into present biz and evade Sheldon Leonard's gangsters at the same time. I don't know if RKO was trying to groom them to compete with Universal's Abbot & Costello, but if so, the effort didn't succeed and for nice reason. Maybe if someone had a better sense of comedic timing, their skits wouldn't have over-extended. Anyway, if you're in the right mood the film might appeal. I guess I was expecting better from the promising title. (In passing—the rotund Alan Carney was now quite a nice actor. He appears as a gangster in that obscure noir gem The Pretender (1947) and comes up with one of the most chillingly disturbing performances I've seen! You'd never guess it from seeing his buffoonish role in this film.)
