Depending upon what picture he was in, French film personality Milton was described as a "famous singer" or a "famous comedian." It was as a singer that he starred in La Bande a Bouboule, the title of which translates as Bouboule's Gang. Critics carped that the story was "of no interest whatsoever," and indeed the plotline, involving romance and mistaken identity at a vacation resort, is only a peg on which to hang a passel of song solos. A brief sequence involving a bevy of bathing beauties was singled out for critical praise, but that was to be expected in 1932. La Bande a Bouboule was directed by the prolific Leon Mathot, who was in motion pictures when Milton was still in knee-pants.
