Grable, Miranda, Nicholas Bros. Technicolor, this film has it all!
30 November 1999 | by (Dallas, TEXAS) – See all my reviews

Of its genre, one of the greatest musicals ever. Betty makes male hearts swoon (and that's not all)! Any questions as to why she was number one with our boys overseas? Carmen is a firecracker and the Nicholas Brothers have never been duplicated. This film was much more about the players than the meat of the film. Meat-wise just a bunch of fluff, but performance-wise and production-wise, excellent!
