Much better than average musical/romance
28 October 1999 | by (Jacksonville, Florida) – See all my reviews

Cut to the chase: Betty Grable looks and sounds great as usual. The filming at the Diamond Horseshoe gives it authenticity. Color is excellent. Acting is very good. So why is this film given a weighted IMDb average of 3.9? Who knows? There could be something wrong with the formula as it's applied to this film. The mean vote (when I voted) was 6. That's better, but not up to the 9 I gave it. See this film! Vote for it! It does not deserve a 3.9!
