Just the period visuals make it worth watching, let alone the songs!
I find "On a Clear..." to be a delicious example of a star vehicle which lets the star (Barbra Streisand in this instance) show her great abilities to the movie's advantage. The period characterization is almost unbelievable, Cecil Beaton's costumes are beyond wonderful. He manages to make Barbra look actually beautiful and stunning in the scene where she is seducing Robert Tentrees, thus making the situation more realistic. After all it is supposed to be a musical comedy, not historical drama, and as such, it is highly entertaining. For me it is a gem.
