Great Classic Musical
5 April 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Enjoy viewing Classic Musical films that were made in the 50's and this film was full of great talented actors, singers and dancers. Jane Powell, (Susan Smith) was at the top of her career along with a great performance by Debbie Reynolds, (Carol Pace) who put her heart and soul into her role as a girl whose father was Walter Pidgeon,(Rear Adm. Daniel Xavier Smith. Vic Damone, (Rico Ferrari) sang some great songs along with Tony Martin,(Chief Boatswain's Mate William F. Clark). J. Carrol Naish, (Mr. Peroni) played the role of a florist who wanted to marry Rico Ferrari mother and his acting kept me laughing at his great performance. If you looked close, you will see the great comedian Alan King perform as a Shore Patrol Petty officer. I almost forgot that Ann Miller, (Ginger) showed her great talent as a fantastic dancer. Enjoy
