fast-moving little gem
19 October 2008 | by (California, U.S.) – See all my reviews

As someone else wrote, this film is surprisingly tuneful. LOTS of musical numbers, and almost every one is catchy and hummable. The only negative in the film is a tedious dream sequence of dueling knights. Fortunately, it only lasts five minutes. Interesting to see Barbara Bates, looking much more beautiful than in her famous appearance at the end of "All About Eve."

The Technicolor photography is gorgeous, and the Catalina locations are fun to see. All the people in the many crowd scenes, such as one at a big dance hall, are extremely good-looking and well-dressed. Dick Haymes had one of the all-time great voices, and there is a jazzy dance number by a surprisingly sexy Peggy Ryan (who doesn't play a sexy part in the rest of the picture), and her partner Ray McDonald, that is absolutely dynamite. Peggy was one hell of a dancer.

For those who appreciate lighthearted musicals of the early 50's, highly recommended.
