When Dan Dailey drives to his ranch he exits his car and opens the drive way gate. He drives into the ranch without closing the gate, but cattle are loose which he drives past and would walk out the open gate to wander off. See more »
There is a reason this is a practically unknown and rarely shown on TV. While there is nothing terribly wrong about this movie, there is also nothing terribly right about it either. It is a throwaway production from start to finish.
It succeeds only as modest entertainment. None of the songs are particularly memorable. One song, "The Girl with the Yaller Shoes" is downright annoying.
The script is especially weak - even by movie musical standards. It does not serve wither of the leads very well. Dan Daily is about twenty years too old to be playing a "young rancher". Cyd Charisse's character is very cranky and negative at the start of the film. It is very difficult to feel any empathy for characters who have no positive energy. Especially silly is the casting of Agnes Morehead as Mr. Dailey's Mother - even though they are roughly the same age.
Fans of modern dance will no doubt enjoy the dance numbers. To my untrained eye they just seemed very dated and out of place.
