With anyone other than Ros. Russell in the leading role, the film would have been disastrous!

Not-quite pleasing comedy/musical from Robert Pirosh, who co-wrote the screenplay with Jerome Davis from the story by Phoebe and Henry Ephron. Perhaps fans of Rosalind Russell, Eddie Albert, or lovable character actress Marion Lorne may enjoy more than others. Fernando Lamas is sensual in the romantic lead, and Gloria DeHaven is charming as his love interest and nightclub act. Eddie Albert is particularly engrossing as the affluent "daddy's-boy", and Marion Lorne simply shines as Russell's mumbling Aunt Clara. The film can certainly boast awe-inspiring costumes by ultimate designer Edith Head. Hugh Martin and Ralph Blane wrote the songs, with a musical score by M.S.I. Spencer-Hagen. Among the better song/dance numbers are "Take A Chance" and "Hillbilly Heart." Robert Alton served as choreographer, as well as associate producer. Also, actor George Chakiris is featured as a chorus boy. The overall best performer is the solid, consistently dependable Rosalind Russell, who simply dazzles with charm, energy, and wit as the happy-go-lucky Kim Halliday. With anyone else in the leading role and the film would have been disastrous!
