The Blonde from Peoria

Alice Jeanne Leppert had blonde hair, deep blue eyes, and a deep contralto singing voice . . . . And she was only nineteen years old when she starred in this movie. As a teenager she got a singing job with Rudy Vallee’s band, and when he got the leading role in a musical romantic comedy he managed to get Alice a small part.

The female romantic lead for that movie walked off the set, and Alice Faye became the leading lady in her first appearance on the big screen. That movie premiered in March of 1934, and this story starring the Jean Harlow lookalike was released in December of the same year.

Alice Faye’s movie career continued to bring her increasing fame until 1945 when she starred in a movie produced and directed by Otto Preminger. She felt that her performance was the best of her career, but ¬†¬†Darryl F. Zanuck edited her best scenes out and promoted the scenes and close-ups of supporting actress Linda Darnell. Alice was so upset that she walked away from her contract and refused to act in any motion picture for seventeen years until appearing in the 1962 movie “State Fair.”

Alice Faye married musician and comedian Phil Harris, and they both performed for many years on the Jack Benny radio show during her off-camera years.

In this, her third appearance in motion pictures, she is a young girl from Peoria who goes to Hollywood in search of fame and fortune. As she once said about many of her early movies, her singing voice was a bit deeper than the story plot. This plot seems to be little more than a showcase for the talents of Alice Faye and a couple of comedians who never achieved real stardom. There is no head-scratching mystery in the plot, and no white-knuckled terror, but plenty of time-capsule views of Hollywood in 1934 and the actors who wanted to climb the ladder of success. Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
