The film supposedly takes place in 1900, yet the dialogue references Rimsky-Korsakov's opera "Le Coq d'Or," which wasn't composed until 1907 and wasn't performed until 1909 (a year after Rimsky-Korsakov's death in 1908). See more »
Helped lift June Allyson to the top of popularity polls in the late 1940's.
June Allyson takes full advantage of the chance to show off her comic talent in this charming film set in turn-of-the- century New York. Kathryn Grayson, who was at the time a bigger star, is in fine voice. Lauritz Melchior and Jimmy Durante make substantial contributions to the fun. It's the first time June Allyson and Peter Lawford were paired, and he is delightful. But it is June's film, and one of her best during her MGM years. Unfortunately, it wasn't filmed in technicolor.
