Filmed showstopper.
25 January 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was fortunate to see this film while a freshman in college the year it was released. Having always enjoyed musical theater I loved the movie. Unfortunately I never got to see it again until it showed up once on television about thirty years ago. By that time I had the British original cast recording with Norman Wisdom so I knew the songs and found it even more fun. Then we saw a Ray Bolger nightclub act and I got to speak with him afterward. His "Once in Love With Amy" was the high point of his act as it was in the Broadway show. In the movie he repeats his famous interaction with an audience during that number as he did on the stage. According to Cy Feuer it was that number and that interaction that made the show a hit. I agree that this movie is part of show business history and should be available on DVD.
