[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.] That was posted by a Millennial who hasn't a clue to lady's attire in the early 20th century.

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.
