Many wonderful songs. Makes me feel good to watch it.
31 January 2001 | by (North Carolina) – See all my reviews

This movie is filled with wonderful songs. The voices of Jeanette and Nelson blend wonderfully. It is a joy to watch and listen to. I find myself singing along with them. It also has gentle humor in it. And Jeanette MacDonald is beautiful and radiant as always.
