Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Universal's My Gal Loves Music is an agreeable derivation of Paramount's The Major and the Minor, with a bit of Nothing Sacred thrown in. Grace McDonald plays pretty and talented Judy Mason, who poses as a 14-year-old child prodigy to pep up business for snake-oil peddler Dr. Bilbo's (Walter Catlett) medicine show. As an upshot of this deception, Judy is brought to New York to sing on a network radio program, with Bilbo-who happens to be her uncle-in tow. Mel Murray (Bob Crosby), bandleader on the radio show, decides to protect "little" Judy during her visit to the big city. He finds himself falling in love with the girl despite the presumed difference in their ages, leading Judy to seriously consider telling the truth for the first time in the picture. Featured in the cast of My Gal Loves Music are genuine kiddie performers Freddie Mercer and Paulina Carter.
