[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.

This is one of my favorite musicals. Doris Day and Danny Thomas are delightful in their roles as Grace and Gus Kahn. They do a great acting job and are very believable. The music is all wonderful and really takes you back. The reason I think the story is so good and probably close to their life is that Grace Kahn was one of the advisors when the film was being made. The movie was made after Gus died but she was still around to see that the story got told as close to the truth as possible.
Mary Wickes also gives one of her best performances. Although I have never seen her give a bad one. She is just good in whatever role she has. Her sly comments are always charming and very funny and she delivers her lines so well.
I think this should be at the top of their list to produce on DVD for all of us old musical fans and collectors. I think it was out at one time on VHS but now it's not in print. I for one vote to see this one come out again. If you haven't seen this it should prove to be a very good couple of hours spent if you get a chance to see it.
