Great Movie-Looking for copy
2 August 2009 | by lakevixen928See all my reviews

Can someone please help me find a copy of this movie. I have an 8x10 glossy of Donald O'Conner singing in front of the band in the movie. My father was one of the band members and would love to find a copy of the movie as a remembrance and to add to my collection of movies he was in. Would love any help I can get. All in all, the movie was great I thought. You need to remember when the movie was made and most musicals of the day were a little plot challenged, but the music and clothes were what were the most fun and the sheer entertainment value of the times. The '50's were a lighthearted, fun era and the movies of the time reiterated that.
