Suzy, you don't know how wonderful it is to meet someone like you. Someone I can, converse with.
That's the way I feel too. Everything's so crazy nowadays, that there's so many things I'd like to ask you, things I couldn't talk to my mother about. Like, for instance, rocket ships and what if you get to like someone and the first thing you know, he might have to go off and, or, all sorts of things.

Don Adams (as Maxwell Smart) used the line "missed by that much" a lot and that is the way this film hit me. It had great actors, fantastic dancers, good direction and yet, for me, it was second rate. I know most of the other reviewers will disagree with me but I just couldn't get into it. Some musicals (Singin' In The Rain, Showboat, Kiss Me, Kate and a lot more) grab you from the first frame but this one just didn't do it for me. It was wonderful as always to see the Champions (I always had a crush on Marge) and Debbie Reynolds and Bob Fosse were good as always, but the film just didn't click with me, It is well worth watching at least once (you'll find it often on TCM) but I will never be able to rate it as a favorite.
