[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!

Firstly, I had seen Miss Darieux in several movies. In this one, not even a trace of a French accent - amazing. Also, enjoyed Lamas, an Argentinian with a what-kind-of accent. By the way, whatever happened to his heart-throb son? Back to "Rich, Young and Pretty," I say pooh - double pooh - or poohpooh to the naysayers who dissected this movie and found fault with the performers and/or the script.
The songs were good, but certainly not MGM's best. The happiest surprise was "Deep In the Heart of Texas" - what a joy, and the song involving the great Four Freshmen.
The ballads were fairly decent - nothing more, nothing less. As for the fellow with the cane and cigar box who does not like Jane Powell - to quote Gen. McAuliffe when asked about surrendering to Germany - NUTS! I don't know if she was pretty or cute, so I settle for pretty cute. Her voice, not quite as strong as Kathryn Grayson, is still quite beautiful.
One of that era's best singers was Vic Damone who could sing powerfully, or pleasantly. I enjoyed him.
I loved the ending with its flying saucers - and knives, forks, spoons, and French cuisine.
Yes, I enjoyed the movie, and I'm proud to admit it. Onward and upward.
