Only an hour, but pretty harmless

Anyone, even a musical lover, will tell you that Anything Goes is a pretty silly story. A bunch of colorful characters are stuck on a boat together, and while he loves her and she loves someone else, and she's marrying that guy, and he's pretending to be someone else—well, it's a hodge podge of musical comedy interrupted by Cole Porter standards and some tap dancing.

While Ethel Merman starred in the original Anything Goes on Broadway in 1934, she reprised her role for Hollywood in 1936, with Bing Crosby by her side. Almost twenty years later, she made a live television adaptation, this time with Frank Sinatra. Two years after that, in 1956, Hollywood ditched Ethel but kept Bing and made another filmed version! Anyway, the 1954 version was severely condensed to fit into a television event on Colgate Comedy Hour. While the plot is pretty truncated, I don't think anyone is really watching it for the dialogue. They're watching it to see Frank Sinatra and Ethel Merman sing live versions of "Anything Goes", "I Get a Kick Out of You", "You're the Top", and "Blow Gabriel Blow". The two stars didn't get along, and it's pretty obvious when you watch it that they have zero chemistry together, but if you'd like to see them performing live, you can give it a watch. It's only an hour long.
