Even though Ethyl Merman originated the role on Broadway, she was not considered attractive enough to carry the starring top billing. I am a real fan of Cole Porter and will watch anything he is involved with. Unfortunately, a lot of his work is either not included in movies that tout "music by Cole Porter", or is thrown out because it may not be mainstream for the audience of the day. Good example is "Anything Goes."
This is a movie you watch for the musical performance and dancing, not the story. Dan Daily's role could have been played by anyone.
I pull out the DVD about twice a year and again visit Cole Porter and this innocent musical.
Lena Horne is outstanding.
