Quotes

Gus Kahn: [sings this to the tune of It Had to Be You] It had to be me that had to get you. I stand 5 foot 10, a man among men, but you're 7'2. I meet lots of girls when I make the rounds, but none are like you 7 foot 2, 70 pounds, but you make me thrill and you always will. I realize Betty you look like spaghetti, but what can I do? It's your fingertips that I adore; when you stand up they touch the floor. It had to be you, wonderful you, 7 foot 2.

Wonderful, nostalgic songs with a great cast!
23 November 1998 | by (Ohio) – See all my reviews

I was surprised how much I enjoyed this 1951 black & white musical with Danny Thomas, in his first starring role, and Doris Day who is always excellent. The story is a tear jerker, happy tears, the songs leave you humming, and the cast and credits are universally excellent. I highly recommend this film.
