During the Cosmo Cosmetics number, all of the monitors in the television control room are in color. Expensive color sets would never have been used in a real TV control room, and in fact weren't even available in 1950. See more »

Better than most "musicals." My childhood favorite.
28 March 2006 | by duskynoirSee all my reviews

The songs and dances are wonderful! Kitty and Jack are actors so when they sing/perform there are scenery and wardrobes that go along with the songs, making it less like an ordinary "musical." The story itself is modern and realistic even for the time (like someone else mentioned some of the things they say may have been considered "risque.") If you like old movies or musicals, I recommend you find a way to see this! You'll never get these songs out of your head, and you probably wont want to either. A classic!

I grew up watching this movie over and over again. I wish that I could find another copy but it seems impossible. :( If any decides to release it again, let me know!
