Need the title of a movie released in the late 30s or early 40s.  Title
is something like "Hellsapoppen".  It's a commedy farce.

Good morning Emeriga!

I hope this film isn't symbolic of how your Christmas Eve is going,
but I think you want the 1941 film 'Hellzapoppin'.

This film was directed by H.C. Potter (no relation to Harry!) and
written by playwright, Nat Perrin.  'Hellzapoppin' is a
behind-the-scenes adventure about the production of a musical review
on its way to Broadway.  It stars Martha Raye and a soon-to-be Stooge,
Shemp Howard, of the 3 Stooges fame.  The film has several inspired
dance numbers choreographed by a legendary dancer from the 1940s, Nick
Castle.  This is a must-see madcap comedy sure to get your Christmas
and New Year off to a rollicking good start.  Enjoy!

You can purchase the video from the Movie Hunter here: 

Best wishes,
