Without making comparisons, I've always delighted in this film -- and I saw it when it was first released. Betty Hutton does an excellent job without the need for "Murder He Says" or "His Rocking Horse Ran Away" kinds of songs, singing with a style that seems to me to be historical Seeley. Some say that Ralph Meeker's singing voice was dubbed, yet IMDb indicates on the "Soundtracks" section that his songs were sung by Ralph Meeker. I read somewhere that Meeker in school had studied music theory somewhere along the line. Whosever voice it is, the style seems to be quite like Benny Fields' style. Fields, as I remember, was a big, seemingly athletic kind of guy and Meeker, IMO, fits the mold quite well. The music from the era is fun. For me, the movie is always enjoyable to view.
