Because of Vic Damone's contract with Mercury Records, he was not heard on the MGM Records soundtrack album. Consequently, two Damone-Jane Powell ballads from the Nicholas Brodszky-Sammy Cahn score - the Oscar-nominated "Wonder Why," also "I Can See You" - were rerecorded by both singers for their respective labels. In addition, Mercury issued a disc of "How D'Ya Like Your Eggs in the Morning?" featuring Mr. Damone with The Pied Pipers. In the film, Vic sang this sprightly ditty with Miss Powell and The Four Freshmen. Their soundtrack recording is among the "Romantic Duets From MGM Classics," released on CD by Rhino. A fourth Powell-Damone match-up (and also a Danielle Darrieux-Fernando Lamas teaming in the film), a cozy strain called "We Never Talk Much (We Just Sit Around)," was redone by Miss Powell with male voices on an MGM Records single. The flip side had Jane performing a number sung and danced by Miss Darrieux' in the picture, "L'Amour Toujours (Tonight for Sure)." "Wonder Why," the Powell-Damone rendition plus Jane's solo version, along with her three other commercial takes, can be encountered on a CD named "A Heart That's Free," issued by Flare, a British label.

[Elizabeth has just met Andre, a Frenchman who speaks with an American accent.]
That's funny. You don't speak with a French accent.
My father is English, so I was educated in England.
But you don't speak with an English accent.
Why should I? I'm French!

Jane Powell sparkles as Texas gal Elizabeth Rogers who travels to Europe with her single father and finds romance with a young man--and also meets the mother she never knew. MGM musical on a less-than-grand scale, yet underrated Powell really pours on the charm and her song numbers are fairly witty. The picture is a bit encumbered by the studio's restrictions--there are hardly any scenes set outdoors, and the shots of Paris are obviously fillers from MGM's stock--but the cast (including Una Merkel, Fernando Lamas and Wendell Corey) is colorful and the screenplay (worked on by Sidney Sheldon) is lively and fun. **1/2 from ****
