A gem of a picture with great singing and great songs!
This movie has always been one of my very favorites. The songs (by Harry Warren) are lovely, especially the classic "the More I See You". Anyone watching the picture can see why Grable was a huge star. Dick Haymes sings like a dream and makes a terrific leading man. Although it centers on Grable and Haymes getting together, the story is not one of the silly boy meets girl plots so typical of the 40s. Many of lines still have a bite more than fifty years later. Anytime this picture is on TV, I'll treat myself to it.
