'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 »
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 »
I love this movie. Sure, I have to admit it's cheesy in parts. The story is light,but interesting. Jane Powell's acting and singing are great, and a young Elizabeth Taylor turns out, I think, one of her best performances. It is also the first of her "snobby, rich girl" roles.If you can find a copy of this, nab it! It's really good.
