Cute film showcases young Monroe's voice, stunning beauty
4 November 2000 | by (Los Angeles, CA) – See all my reviews

A very young Marilyn Monroe in her first lead role made an impression on critics with her performance in this light film about a young burlesque queen whose mother disapproves of her engagement to a wealthy man.

Monroe's sweet singing voice is showcased for the first time in this film, and it is a real treat. She had not yet adopted the "Marilyn Monroe" persona, but even without the breathy baby-doll voice she is the image of innocent seduction.

Although the plot is rather formulaic and simplistic, this film does offer something of a twist at the end. All in all a cute film and opportunity to see Monroe as a young fresh-faced beauty who, as always, lights up the screen.
