Review - Three Little Words

Fred was looking a little old here, and Red Skelton wasn't very convincing — mostly he looked like he wasn't quite sure what he was supposed to be doing. Some of the songs were pretty good. They wrote "I Want to Be Loved by You," "Nevertheless," and "Hooray for Captain Spaulding" among many others.
