With anyone other than Ros. Russell in the leading role, the film would have been disastrous!, 26 May 2001
Author: Andrew R. Moore (email@example.com)
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!

Golden Years., 24 January 2007
Author: betoesq from United States of Great America.
Greetings all viewing this! Okay ladies and gentlemen, I have watched
The Girl Rush movie and just absolutely loved it dearly. Just knowing
that Roz and the rest of the awesome and legendary actors and actresses
in the movie was just fantastic. And the music and wonderful
choreography was phenomenal.
To witness the old Las Vegas, in its heyday was just cool and memorable, you all remember the Flamingo and the different Marquee flashes that occurred during the beginning of the movie, like Sophie Tucker and Eartha Kitt, lit up billboard and the casino, and then the landscapes. I just adore this movie and the actors and dancers in it. In fact I'm going to watch this again and just catch things I may have missed by the visual and audio aspects. I feel that: The Girl Rush movie is Good as Gold.
OKay I had watched this movie again (3x), and just fell in love with this movie once again, it just make me feel so happy and love the quip's in between the script. I love to see the actors, humor and the Las Vegas background and setting from back in the day. This movie captivates me, and Im glad this particular web-page in honor of this movie and its actors is up and still running after all these years since its makings. Thank you for posting this and letting me express my feelings and sharing. California fan...Golden State.
