CinemaScope photography in the Rockies the real star
Unlike the 1936 film version which retained little of the original libretto and only four of the original songs, this CinemaScope version went back to the original story and libretto and gives us an accurate look at the operetta as presented on stage. Unfortunately only three of the original songs are used in this version (Rose Marie; Indian Love Call; Mounties). There are five songs new to the production written by Baker and Stoll and they are quite mediocre. Blyth and Keel perform adequately and Lamas does well. However, the beauty here is of the CinemaScope photography set in the woods and dales of the Rockies. It's more travelogue than musical - quite enjoyable but not really outstanding in any way.
