This movie has gotten such a bad rap. No, it's not a Classic MGM musical lin the vain of AN American IN Paris or SINGIN' IN THE RAIN. However, for what it is it stands on its own. Cute story line, lots of cameos from the roaster of MGM stars at the time and some wonderful musical numbers, especially the FRANKIE AND JOHNNIE ballet. That's a must see. Cyd Charisse wasn't the greatest actress but she excels here in her "icy" demeanor and it works well here. Her drunk scene is a stand out. The under rated Cara Williams is a delight and she should have been a bigger star. A reader pointed out that Cyd's husband Tony Martin should have played the role Dan Daily played. Daily was an excellent dancer. Tony doesn't dance, so that would not have worked at all. Why this hasn't been released on DVD is beyond me since so many musicals not as good as this, have been. This is really fine, light, funny entertainment, so unlike movies made today. Lighten up and enjoy.
