A film from a very different era, which is well presented. The musical numbers are numerous (twenty) but follow on from one another - six or seven in a row - and is reminiscent of an American in Paris. The songs refer to various different parts of the globe and the music changes accordingly. Some are fun and help distract from the old story.
Time passes and the story of a woman who becomes pregnant outside of marriage has mercifully less significance nowadays. Grace Chang the singer becomes pregnant but Roy Chiao her impresario, steps in and marries her. The father of the child returns to the scene in the second half of the movie and the leading lady is faced with a dilemma which proves traumatic to deal with.
The film is well made and acted.
