This movie has had me on the hunt for years, and it seems to have vanished off the radar. As far as I can tell, it has never been recorded, either on VHS or DVD. I don't understand why.
It's not a great movie, but better than many that are more available. I'd love to have a good copy.
I saw the movie in the theater when it was first released, and for some reason never forgot it. It has always been a fond childhood memory.
The cast is young and fresh - Pat Boone in the first flush of his success, Tommy Sands at the beginning of a career that had a short life, and Gary Crosby, eerily channeling his father Bing - and they seem to be giving it their all.
The "girls" - the lovely Christine Carriere, the enormously talented Barrie Chase, and a peppy Sheree North - match the boys step for step.
The result is a pleasant romp through the world of 50's musicals.
Sure, the plot is ridiculous, but who really cares? Relax and have fun.
BTW, although the movie was filmed on the lot for the most part, there is some very interesting vintage stock footage of the New Orleans Mardi Gras celebration and parade.
