Another Ann Miller Film From Columbia
10 November 2012 | by timothymcclenaghanSee all my reviews

This film is another entry in the "B" movie group of movies starring Ann Miller produced by Columbia Pictures. Despite that status, there were very talented members of the crew who became prominent later on in Hollywood. Choreographer Jack Cole makes an early career appearance showing his distinctive, original style in the film's production numbers. Cole went on to do choreography for A pictures at both Columbia and 20th Century Fox, notably Gentlemen Prefer Blondes with Marilyn Monroe. Also, Sammy Cahn and Jule Styne provide original music. They were evidently staff composers for Columbia, also composing original music for many other films at that studio. Cahn became one of Frank Sinatra's favorite composers.

LIke most of the other Columbia Miller films, the flimsy plot is just an excuse to sing and dance. Miller fans will be pleased to see the tap dancing production numbers, as well as her song performances. Joe Besser provides comedy, which may have been funny in the day, but now seems very dated. Jeff Donnell plays the airhead girlfriend, the same type of role she played in many other films. So even though it's formulaic, it has enough pleasant moments to make watching it worthwhile. It's not the best Ann Miller film, but not the worst either.
