This wonderful movie is filled with great songs and dance numbers featuring Betty Grable at her absolute best. She dances and sings beautifully...and after watching this movie (I've seen it at least 50 times) I can never stop singing "You Started Something". Both Don Ameche and Robert Cummings are also perfectly cast in their light romantic and debonair roles. As stand-outs though you can't compete with Charlotte Greenwood (who could lift her legs higher than anyone from her generation) and Jack Haley who's comic mugging for the camera never fails to make me laugh. The movies colors and gowns are everything you could want and then some of a great Hollywood Musical. The sets, too, are the stuff Hollywood Dreams are made of...the height of chic. I love watching this movie with Spring Time in the Rockies and Down Argentine Way for a full on Betty Grable Musical Film Fest.
