Unexciting costumer enlivened by vivid dance scenes
I'm not recommending this movie, it pretty much dies during the endless running around the palace, but I always enjoy the exotic dance scenes in these films, they're so laughable yet stimulating. Mari Blanchard looks great while she's dancing (this being the fifties, it's all in those bare beautiful arms), and then there's the staging, the costumes etc. This one's right up there with Gina in "Solomon and Sheba", Rita in "Fire Down Below", but nowhere near Shirley in "Can-Can".
