I would lke to give this a 6 but I just cannot even though I am a big Grable fan, Also a fan of Robertson but this was not his best performance by far. Maybe he felt as out of his element as I perceived him to be.
However the weak script and scenes lets the two of them have several moments that the songs couldn't completely ruin.
I did burn this to DVD because I really do want to have a complete library of both the stars.
The costumes were nice and the color was nice and the 4 major actors/actresses did as much as you could hope for in a weak vehicle.
Watch it but don't expect too much and you won't be disappointed.
As I think on it a 5 might be a little high but I will stick witn it
