Trivia

'Jane Powell (I)' and Kathryn Grayson both received credit for introducing the same movie song in the same year. Showcased in two Technicolor productions from Joe Pasternak is the sprightly refrain, "Love Is Where You Find It" (music by Nacio Herb Brown, lyrics by Earl K. Brent). Miss Powell's rendition comes early in this film, and Miss Grayson has been praised by movie fans and critics for the best song performance in the lavish costume musical, The Kissing Bandit (1948). While Miss Powell had no commercial disc for sale, MGM Records issued as a single Miss Grayson's prerecordings of this lilt and another song from her vehicle, "What's Wrong With Me?" (music by Brown, lyrics by Edward Heyman). Kathryn's two vocals grace a CD devoted to her, called "My Heart Sings," released by Flare, a British label. See more »

Goofs

The picture on Mr Foster's desk in his office is clearly a picture of a man (dark suit, bow-tie, white shirt, pocket handkerchief). But he tells the dance instructor that it's a picture of his wife. See more »

Quotes

Carol Pringle: It's a very nice little swing number, Judy. But I don't know if it's really appropriate for a High School dance.

Scotty Beckett's best
20 August 2000 | by ( LOS ANGELES) – See all my reviews

This film is a real riot of charm, song, wit and dazzling color. This kind of movie-making has been dead for a very long time, to my everlasting regret. Scotty Beckett and Jane Powell stand out. Unfortunately, Carmen Miranda is made to sing Hollywood's version of Brazilian songs, rather than the authentic stuff. It is disappointing that foreigners should so often be the object of amusement in American films. They are not allowed any dignity. However, Miranda makes the best of what she is given, and shines like a star.

The fun is wholesome, but not too wholesome. The plot involves suspected adultery by a venerable father!!! Plots and subplots are gloriously interwoven. Every time I see this film I am reassured that there IS such a thing as perfection.
