a sunshiney musical
23 April 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It was discouraging to read the director's anti-his-movie comments. Granted it was not a big ole MGM spectacular, but I enjoyed "Painting the Clouds With Sunshine." The songs were oldies but goodies and delightful to hear, and it kept moving nicely. The 'girls-looking-for-millionaires' plot was - granted -- old hat, but the musical numbers were thoroughly enjoyable.

Special kudos to Gene Nelson who is as good as, or better than, some of his screen contemporaries. Was he really playing the trumpet while dancing? That number was pure joy.

Mayo and the sisters were lovely to look at, Dennis Morgan is, as usual, a pleasant talent.

WB tossed ole Cuddles in every third picture, it seems. The 'cute-mit-accent' stuff eventually wears thin.

Sorry, Mr. Butler, but I enjoyed your efforts on this one.
