Once More With Feeling!
22 May 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I have seen this film twice on Turner Classic Movies,thank goodness, because I never caught it in the theater. The second time around I laughed out loud because I could see how the jokes fit into the situations. The only thing that I found distracting was a constant dark spot in the red hair over Kay Kendall's (Dolly's) forehead. Was this intentional, or did her hairdresser overlook it? One would think the hair color would be consistent. In any case Ms. Kendall is delightful in this film, and plays the taken-for-granted woman who still loves her mate but hates him for it, to perfection. Yul Brynner shows his full range of acting ability from drama to apathy to comedy at lightening speed, and seems to be enjoying himself enormously. Gregory Ratoff is marvelous as the agent and his one-liners are great if you can catch them through his thick German accent. The stoic other man in Dolly's life is a wonderful parody of the scientist who has trouble grasping complex human situations. When he tells Dolly "I trust you" you can really hear the doubt in his voice. All in all, this is a very enjoyable film, and needs to be watched multiple times to fully appreciate the sumptuous sets (like the gondola bed) and catch every wonderful thing that goes on.
