More scintillating stars - more gorgeous girls - more peppy dancing - more pulsing rhythms - more fun and funsters - than you've even seen before in the year's giant entertainment! (original Herald) See more »
During the Du Barry bedroom scenes Lucille Ball, playing Du Barry, can be seen wearing flat healed shoes while yelling at the guards, being chased around the room, and then hopping around on the bed. Then she is wearing strappy shoes with a small heal. See more »
This film is best-appreciated if seen as a series of skits and songs, a vehicle for the actors. It provides a chance to see Lucille Ball, Red Skelton, Virginia O'Brien and Zero Mostel in comedic action. Gene Kelly only does one solo dance number, but his agility as The Black Arrow foreshadows greater roles like that of D'Artagnan. And seeing Tommy Dorsey dressed up and dancing (or trying to) with the rest of the cast is delightful! There are funny parts as well as parts that presume themselves funny and come off as annoying, but the movie is fun to watch if you don't expect it to be a masterpiece.
