This film was first telecast in New York City Saturday 9 November 1957 on WCBS (Channel 2), followed by Philadelphia Friday 20 December 1957 on WFIL (Channel 6), by San Francisco 8 February 1958 on KGO (Channel 7) and by Los Angeles 9 February 1958 on KTTV (Channel 11). At this time, color broadcasting was in its infancy, limited to only a small number of high rated programs, primarily on NBC and NBC affiliated stations, so these film showings were all still in B&W. Viewers were not offered the opportunity to see these films in their original Technicolor until several years later. See more »
The balconies at the hotel are obviously a set since there is no glass in the windows or doors. This can be clearly seen since there are no reflections when the characters move past them. See more »
Fun and easy flowing movie. Good old film but would LOVE to know the name of the girl playing piano with the Tommy Dorsey Orchestra in the movie. This is not considered a "heavy" movie but light weight and one the kids could watch with mom and dad in today's society. Some typical water scenes of Esther Williams that all of us can enjoy and of course dream we could do the same in our pool. Costuming is tastefully done and this brings back some great music and actually there are several genres covered. Not for Head Bangers or Hip Hoppers but for those that want to hear what the good old stuff really was meant to sound like. Abit more actual acting in this movie than a lot of those that Esther was in. Watch and enjoy!
