Trivia

Carmen Miranda enjoyed her biggest film-song hit with the jaunty travel tune, "Cuanto la Gusta" (music by Gabriel Ruiz, lyrics by Ray Gilbert). Carmen's Decca single, blending her with The Andrews Sisters, peaked at number 12 in "Billboard," where the disc had a 14-week stay. In the picture, Miss Miranda's song and samba had the backing of 'Xavier Cugat' and His Orchestra. On Columbia Records, Cugi without Carmen scored a "Billboard"-charting success. See more »

Goofs

[In the dance scene early on, all of the girls are in long dresses. One of the background girls is clearly wearing what look like fuzzy bedroom slippers.] Posted by a Millennial who hasn't a clue as to woman's styles of the early 20th century. While barely seen, the shoes are black flats, unusual for a formal dance but definitely not slippers. 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.

Nostalgic fun
19 November 2005 | by (usa) – See all my reviews

A DATE WITH JUDY was the filmed version of a popular radio show. FIlmed in 1948, it must have looked somewhat dated even when it first came out, considering the world was was well past World War II and much more adult fare was being filmed by then. But it is all in good, clean, innocent fun, as a 16 year old school girl has trouble with her date for the prom and imagined problems with her old man. Jane Powell is in magnificent voice as the spunky 16 year old, and a radiant Liz Tayor plays her closest friend and sometimes rival. Wallace Berry plays her rather aged dad and is in fine form, while Xavier Cugat and Carmen Miranda drop in for the fun. Lots of familiar character actor populate the sunny California town in which Powell and family reside.
