This film is so good that I want to own it. Jane Powell was 16 when she hit MGM with this bomb shell performance as the daughter of the Ambassador of the USA to Mexico in Mexico City. Just compare this to the current crop of films about teen agers of this year, 2006.
Her delivery of crystal clear singing in a slightly opera trained voice is beautiful like a carillon tower's bells. Jose Iturbi's piano is an added treat. No nude scenes, no profanity, no miserable bed room scenes misdirected and miscast and massacred just great comedy and very classy acting all around.
The 16 year old Jane has the prettiest blue eyes seen in a long time. I saw this movie with my mom back in the 40's and now in the 21st Century it is even better. This is one you won't be afraid to show your kids and it will bring back a lot of long forgotten memories.
