The First CinemaScope Musical--a Visual & Vocal Treat!
18 February 2002 | by sdiner82See all my reviews

Why hasn't this MGM musical ever gotten the acclaim it deserves? The CinemaScope/Eastman Color cinematography of the Canadian Rockies serves as a dazzling backdrop for a rousing Mounties adventure saga. Which also happens to feature a gloriously composed and sung score--Ann Blyth and Fernando Lamas's rendition of "Indian Love Call" is enthralling. Check this out the next time it shows up on Turner Classic Movies. Like "River of No Return" (with Mitchum & Monroe--shot the same year in the same breathtaking locale), it was one of the first films to exploit the new anamorphic process in its full glory--and has never been surpassed.

With a deliciously hilarious romantic subplot involving those two comedic geniuses, Marjorie Main and Bert Lahr. What more could one want? As Howard Keel sings to Blythe in the course of the title song, "Rose Marie I love you" . . .
