MGM caliber musical comedy, well worth watching
12 January 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Among the widely divergent IMDb reviews of this film, I'm inclined toward the positive. Having missed seeing the credits, I thought I'd come upon an obscure but worthy MGM musical (Kennon Wynn was an MGM player, Ann Miller about to become one, the set's, choreography, musical arrangements were MGM caliber, so maybe they borrowed Evyln Keyes from Columbia. . .) Well in fact it was a Columbia picture.

The witty, fast paced dialog was better than that in most 1940's MGM musicals. The arty, sexy, and unusual choreography by Eugene Loring (Nick Castle is co-credited) is very similar to what he did in "Yolanda and the Thief" with Astaire and company at MGM the year before.

Evyln Keyes does an excellent job giving a Roz Russell performance with just the right comic tone, zest, facility with fast paced comic repartee. Keenon Wynn is the weak link, he's no Carry Grant, and seems to me loud, obnoxious, and hard to take. Ann Miller is genuinely sexy in this film, something I never thought she was at MGM.
