Superior old-fashioned entertainment; all story with no unnecessary filler. Very refreshing for this era. Bonnie Sommerville was outstanding; her facial eloquences expressing all the feelings from joy and happiness, to pain and sorrow, were absolutely wonderful. She made the movie story seem believable. The new music in the film, shows that great tunes with harmony, substance, melody, and excitement can still be written and performed.
