Rita in luscious technicolor
6 July 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It's not much of a movie, but its color makes it more enjoyable than it really is. The film seem to be lacking musicwise since Rita sings only once during a gypsy dance number. It's interesting that her studio didn't just write new songs like MGM did for movies like On the Town for example.

Rita is beautiful as always, proving herself to be the popular sex symbol of her day. What I love about her, besides her beauty, is her voice. It had a warm and attractive quality that added to her appeal.

Glenn Ford and Rita had good chemistry together, and it was no surprise her studio wanted them paired together. However, they made better movies than this one together.

This is the kind of movie you watch once, and never bother to sit through a second time. Rita made more impressive movies like Gilda and Cover Girl and The Lady From Shanghai. Catch those too.
