A reworking of the movie Three Blind Mice (1938) based on the play of the same name, which in turn led to another remake Moon Over Miami (1941). This remake is set during the turn of the century.

This movie reminds me of that faux-movie Lush Budget within the movie What A Way To Go starring Shirley McLaine.
It is about three sisters who have such pitiful inheritance that they set out for Atlantic City in search of rich husbands. Like they said, it is a reworking of Moon Over Miami (1941) which itself is a remake of Three Blind Mice (1938). Seven years later they had another remake of it in How to Mary a Millionaire (1953) starring Marilyn Monroe, Lauren Bacall, and Betty Grable (I gave it a 6).
Okay, which of them do I like best? I am sorry, but I never saw Three Blind Mice. It seems impossible with all the movies TCM has. You can purchase this movie from TCM but I watched this movie on FXM. The color (it was shot in Technicolor) and the costumes were superb as was the lighting. I liked this movie the best. It is available from TCM. Just click on shop and search for it. But other reviewers here say the movie is either in black and white or very faded color. They must have viewed reprints that had been shown too many times. What I saw was gorgeous color! Is the DVD as good as what I viewed? I don't know.
I have studiously avoided saying too much about the movie itself. It goes slow by today's standards. Just start watching it and if it isn't your cup of tea, turn to something else and make a pot of tea. I stopped what I was doing to watch it.
