Cinderella goes to Mexico
17 March 2010 | by See all my reviews

Who needed a remake of "Midnight" ? I certainly didn't ! Dorothy Lamour is a pleasant actress but cannot hold a candle to Claudette Colbert ,the "baroness" of the first version.Besides ,the songs and dances get in the way ,particularly if it's not your kind of music.The only improvement is the phone call to the "sick" little girl,with Patric Knowles providing the voice !That said ,it's certainly enjoyable enough ,but you should favor "midnight" ,out of respect for Colbert.

I do not agree with the precedent user as far Leisen's "decline" is concerned :it's relative.More goodies were still to come :magnificent melodramas ("to each his own" An Oscar job by De Havilland)and the best adaptation of Irish's "I married a dead man" ("No man of her own") ,much superior to the French ("J'ai Epousé Une Ombre") or even worse American remakes ("Mrs Winterbourne" )
