Starting with this film, Betty Grable would blossom as the box-office queen of Technicolor musicals. Between 1940 and 1955, Miss Grable was showcased in 22 tailor-made color vehicles at Twentieth Century-Fox, plus one at Columbia, Three for the Show (1955). Note: Betty's last movie, How to Be Very, Very Popular (1955), was shot in Color by DeLuxe. See more »

Grable, Miranda, Nicholas Bros. Technicolor, this film has it all!
Of its genre, one of the greatest musicals ever. Betty makes male hearts swoon (and that's not all)! Any questions as to why she was number one with our boys overseas? Carmen is a firecracker and the Nicholas Brothers have never been duplicated. This film was much more about the players than the meat of the film. Meat-wise just a bunch of fluff, but performance-wise and production-wise, excellent!
