Poor feeble and old
27 June 2005 | by (london) – See all my reviews

I saw this film in the TCM listings and wondered why i had never heard let alone seen this musical.I thought that i knew most of the MGM musicals.well the reason is self evident,it is a real clinker.Everything about this film is second rate.there is not one single redeeming feature.I know that one does not expect too much from the plot in musical films but this was just ridiculous.Wendell Corey seemed as if he was trying to do a Walter Pigeon imitation.Even Jane Powell was lost in this mess.The songs were totally unmemorable and unnameable,This despite the fact that there was an Academy nomination for one song.The colour was effective was about the only thing to this films credit.
