Marvelous
14 May 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I saw this film in the 1950s, as has been said previously the music and the singing are supreme and memorable. I have not seen the film since its first showing, mainly I think because it must have been shown on TV whilst I was at work if it ever was on the box

It is definitely a film that should be viewed a second time, so perhaps I will buy the DVD now that I know it is available

Dulcie and Michael are very good acting together, usually playing the typical English couple . I do not think that the music would appeal only to opera lovers. its tuneful melodies should be appreciated by all music lovers.
