They all started something!
9 March 2001 | by julianhwescottSee all my reviews

One of my favorite Betty Grable films! Beautiful scenery, beautiful songs and excellent choreography! Betty's costumes were really stunning and I wonder if the studio used a different designer for this film. It's all about losing out on an inheritance for the two Latimer sisters and their Aunt Susan because of taxes, so the three take off for Miami so Betty can find a millionaire husband. As usual, Betty doesn't have any trouble finding a man and that is when all the fun starts. They have a great time and so will you when you watch this film.
