Goofs

In the opening credits, the funnels of the inbound luxury liner Mayflower sport the white, green and red of the Italian Line. Once docked, the camera pan across the Mayflower's superstructure shows the forward funnel painted completely in red. On departure, the ship's livery is back to that of the Italian Line, and the Mayflower's bow bears the real-life name of a crack pre-war Italian liner, the Conte di Savoia. See more »

A fun cruise
30 July 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

MGM's musicals are meant to be enjoyed and this one sure is. Simple plot of daughter of captain (JANE POWELL and GEORGE BRENT) stows away on his liner. Typical funny business and misunderstandings pursue and it all comes out just fine in the end. But of course!! Remember, LUXURY LINER is an MGM entertainment, not message film. JANE POWELL excel is her performance and the beautfiful FRANCES GIFFORD (whom I never head of) is one great leading lady. Wish she had made more films. Good music helps this unbelievable story line just fine. There seems to have been some footage left on the cutting room floor as a couple of scenes don't make sense, and where does JANE get all that wardrobe when she stows away with a shirt and pair of jeans?? Oh well, again, remember, it's an MGM musical. Doesn't have to make sense, just entertain, which it certainly does. A must see for fans of this ilk.
