This musical (which can be labeled a semi-musical) marked the second and last time that Gene Kelly would sing and dance in a black-and-white vehicle. Gene's previous monochromatic musical had been his debut picture, For Me and My Gal (1942). See more »

No, this is not "Singin in the Rain" or "On the Town" or "Cover Girl" or "Anchors Away"! It's a simple black and white comedy with a handful of musical numbers thrown in. Kelly does an eye popping dance number on a construction site and does another cute number with a dog. These are as inventive as his numbers in more expensive films, but the "B quality" of the film does not do them any justice. He also sings "It Had to Be You". The plot is totally forgettable comedy fodder and since Kelly was never really known for his comedy playing, it falls a little flat. However, the dance numbers are terrific.
