Thanks for the alert. A friend of mine and I watched it and we both thoroughly enjoyed the story.
Interesting that Dick Powell didn't get to do any singing. I would have added one more scene showing the happy couples, but maybe that's just me.

You have uncovered one of the best kept secrets in the history of film repertory showings before live audiences. And that secret is that when seen with an audience, watching a George Arliss performance is totally transformed. To coin a phrase, he plays his audience like Heifetz played his violin. You have to experience it to believe it.
