one beautiful castle
30 June 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

First of all, a couple of those 'critics' particularly the jasper moaning about what he calls unmemorable songs. "Rainbow 'Round My Shoulder," "Bye Bye Blackbird," hardly fit that category. There were other good standards, and some of the less-known items were very, very good. Also, the dance number in the playground was imaginative and most enjoyable.

Someone was yapping about Charlotte Austin's smile. It was beautiful, and so was she. Many others pale by comparison, especially some of today's phonies whose beauty comes from skilled make-up artists. Gene Austin's daughter was a beaut.

Someone said that Lloyd Corrigan was not as good as usual. What b.s. He played the same part he usually did, and just as enjoyably.

Two of the best singers in the business, Frankie Laine and Billy Daniels, are two more excellent reasons for trying to get your hands on this virtually unknown gem.

Once again, TCM pressed the confusion button and scheduled another picture with the same title (the title of this one was changed a couple of times). The other starred the great Margaret Rutherford and I hope to catch up with it some time.

For now, I'm happy about putting this one on instead. Forget the negative yapping. Guarantee - you'll enjoy every moment.
