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 »

Classic Teenie-Bopper of it's time.
30 May 2004 | by (New York City, NY) – See all my reviews

1948 produced some of MGM's top teenagers to movie audiences. Put them in a gorgeous technicolor musical comedy, add some veteran adults and you have one of the best of it's time.

Jane Powell, lovely voice and all, plays Judy. Her best friend is the now-sophisticated Elizabeth Taylor, all of 15 years old, looking absolutely lovely that you know she's headed for glamorous grownup roles down the road. The camera loved her. Then there's Scotty Beckett, having started his career at the age of four, now in the awkward teens, doing one of his best performances as Judy's date. Sad he died such a tragic death at an early age.

Scatter many film veterans to the likes of Wallace Berry and Selena Royale as Judy's parents, Robert Stack, young and handsome as Elizabeth's love interest, Leon Ames as Elizabeth and Scotty's dad, Clinton Sundberg as the butler to Ames, Xavier Cugat and his band with Carmen Miranda his star attraction, and one of her last films, and George Cleveland as Judy's Grandpa.

A trivia note: watch the scene with Judy waiting to be picked up for the prom. Early in the picture. Grandpa enters and actually kicks the dog to make his entrance. I had to rewind to believe what I saw. The dog also yelped when he did. And this is the guy who later played all those "Lassie" TV programs. Shame on you George!

All in all a charming and lighthearted film with the beauty of Taylor, the voice of Powell and the comedy of Beckett. Jane sings "A Most Unusual Day" and "Love Is Where You Find It".
