Very underrated!
30 March 2004 | by (the lower depths) – See all my reviews

This may have been made in the dying days of MGM musicals. No Sinatra. No Kelly. But it has some spectacular classic songs by Vincent Youmans. Plus 2 of the finest voices of all time singing together:

Tony Martin & Vic Damone. AND superior musical arrangements & Russ Tamblyn dancing.

Never mind the negative reviews elsewhere. They do not make them like this any more. For sure. So enjoy it! Great musical!!
