Wow! What happened. The movie started and then ended. Nothing much made sense. It seems like half the movie was cut as there were so many unexplained incidences abrupt scene changes. Didn't Zanack care about his films? I know he was notorious for cutting his films, but this is ridiculous. It seems he sabotaged one of his own makings. Unforgivable. And too bad the REVUERS number was cut as it would have been great to see Judy Holiday. The good: Carmen Miranda: Vivian Blaine; William Bendix; Don Ameche; the black dancing brothers and the color. Bad: EVERYTHING ELSE. Wonder how this did at the box office. I'm sure the actors were disappointed in the way the film turned out. Not meant to be a classic, and it isn't.
