This one has a totally predictable plot with a very Irritating Dean Stockwell and a shrill Kathryn Grayson. The musical numbers save the movie: "The Worry Song" with Jerry and Gene Kelly; "I Fall In Love Too Easily" by Frank Sinatra; the dance number with the little Spanish girl (Sharon McManus), too many others to list. More good than bad; but musical numbers are spare in the first hour, plentiful afterwards. But that first hour is trying when the cast isn't singing.
You can begin to see the beginning of the cracks in the foundation of MGM's formula here. This came out the year that WWII ended, and yet they are sticking to this pre-warrish happy sappy musical formula with clean cut kids. They would get away with this for a couple of more years before the problems began to be projected at the box office.
