wow! this movie is fab, not Wow! You'll love it
21 September 2004 | by SPIFFYKITCHENSee all my reviews

Hello, Not avail or video or DVD, Ain't Misbehavin is a movie gem from the 1950's. A movie practically nobody has seen! Background: I had the movie poster for this film for over 10 years hanging in my den! But I could never see it because it was never available anywhere!!! I loved the poster- It's got Mamie Van Doren, Rory Calhoun, Piper Laurie, The slogan went It's got that mamama Mamie and its got that mamama Mambo! Ma Ma Ma I was hooked!! It was on the top of my movies to see list for years! Finally Last year a copy of the movie made from a Canada TV airing or something was put on Ebay and I got to see it!!! Its great, the musical numbers are great, Mamie Van Doren is great, Piper Laurie is great. It's the best movie ever made!! Run out and find a copy and see it!
