A true musical treasure!!!
23 November 2003 | by (Manchester, CT) – See all my reviews

I am a huge Donald O'Connor fan, and have seen most of movies. This one however, is one of his best, right up there with "Singin' in the Rain" and "Call Me Madam." This movie is about Wilbur McMurtry, played by O'Connor, and how he is kidnapped by a small western town, to run in their annual footrace. It has two musical numbers, one being "Me and My Shadow," a fast paced tap number, which has him dancing with shadows and running up walls, four years before he did in "Singin' in the Rain." Then there is "S'posin'" which is more of a lyrical love song, where once again he shows his incredible dancing skills. Not to mention that this movie is hilarious. Donald's comedic timing and physical comedy in this movie are outstanding, not to mention his dancing and singing, but that's no big surprise. This movie is pretty hard to track down...it took me almost a year, but I would try getting a copy of it because it some of Donald O'Connor's best work, and is just an all-around great movie. A hidden gem and a true musical treasure.
