Yet another musical biography of a famous songwriter. I saw "Irish Eyes are Smiling" only for the music and the beautiful June Haver but I didn't think it would turn out to be this dull and exhausting. "Irish Eyes" is one of the most laughably boring biographies ever made.
It is the same reaction I had with Haver's later musical, "I Wonder Who's Kissing Her Now"(1947): the Technicolor, the lavish sets and musical numbers are not without merit but the story is frustratingly hollow. It lacks strength and a sense of direction.
