When Cynthia and Thomas are lost in the woods she lies down to sleep and she has his jacket over one shoulder. He reaches down and pulls the jacket all the way over her. They cut to him and then back to her and the jacket is still only over one shoulder. See more »
Van Johnson and Esther Williams at their loveliest. Wonderful music throughout. A delightful picture for anyone who has ever been or hopes to be in love.
We have beautiful Esther Williams swimming and diving. We have Van Johnson sincere and radiant. We have Melchior in fine classical voice, Tommy Dorsey playing Grieg on the trombone (!) along with other classic Dorsey hits. And a couple of new songs. The movie mostly takes place in a resort with Olympic swimming pool and a sound-stage with a view over Yosemite Valley.
It's all very light, but let yourself be carried away, and it will steal your heart.
