Excellent Musical
19 August 2004 | by (Fort Lauderdale, Florida) – See all my reviews

My only comment is that such a wonderful film should not be placed somewhere on the shelf and forgotten thru the years. It is too great a picture to not allow the many people (like myself) who would love to purchase it and show it to their family and friends to enjoy for as many times as they wish. And besides, I think Dennis Morgan was a wonderful singer and a very handsome actor. And so, once again, I am hoping that whoever places these films on video will take all our comments into consideration and take notice of the many people who feel the same as I do about this film. The newer version with Gordon MacRae does not appeal to me at all. I want the old version. Let's just say it is the nostalgia part of me that is hoping that this can be accomplished.
