Fascinating to see some of the top Warner Directors appearing as themselves in this film. And all the other Star cameos as others have written in previous reviews. I am a big fan of Errol Flynn, so the ending is quite cute.All in all, cotton candy fluff, in a fun way.
It's a Great Feeling (1949)
- James Higgins
This movie is hysterically funny! Jack Carson and Dennis Morgan play themselves, making jabs at each other throughout. Doris Day is a delight. Great songs, fine production and lots of inside jokes. The guest cameo stars are impressive. The scene with Joan Crawford is particularly memorable. It is just great to see Hollywood stars make fun of themselves and the industry. Excellent writing, I enjoyed this tremendously.
It's a great movie
- Jarrod McDonald
I rather liked the script for this one and found it to be uniquely clever. It has a very self-reflexive view of Hollywood, at least the slice of life at Warners. The one thing that was obviously fake was that Dennis Morgan could decide not to sign the contract for the movie with Jack Carson. They had multi-year deals with the studios back then. He would've been under contract for a certain period of time and be forced to do whatever picture they told him to do. That's why Joan Crawford and Errol Flynn both look unhappy to be in this. They didn't have a choice. But some of the other actors who do cameos seem to be having fun, especially Jane Wyman who gets to perform with her real-life daughter, Maureen; and Edward G. Robinson, who does a loyal turn as the studio's resident Mr. Tough Guy. Conspicuously absent: James Cagney and Bette Davis (we see her picture hanging in an office with other stars' photos). Most of the film's action, of course, belongs to its trio of stars-- Dennis Morgan, Doris Day and Jack Carson-- and I think Day more than holds her own with the guys. It's a blast, and the best routine, in my opinion, is the one where they all ask the man at the information desk about a train heading to Wisconsin.

This is the worst of all Doris Days films. She so sweet and phoney that I feel each time I see this picture, I want to get sick. I have to blame it on the director and not Doris. With the exception of all the stars who appeared this film it should have been shevled.
A very entertaining movie. I like the stars poking fun at themselves and it has a very clever script. Jack Carson is a hoot. Doris Day - I love her. She's so young and beautiful and her voice, I always thought she was underrated as a singer. She always brought her "A" game,

GREAT FUN......SILLY STUFF, BUT BOY DO WE NEED IT NOW....A YOUNG DORIS DAY IS STILL RAW MATERIAL, BUT THE TALENT WAS THERE EVEN THEN....WORD HAS IT JOAN CRAWFORD WAS NOT HAPPY BEING IN A COLOR FILM AT 44....BUT THEN SHE MADE QUITE A FEW LATER ON...AND HOW ABOUT "THE BEST OF EVERYTHING" 10 YEARS LATER...NO FILTERS THERE. SHE REALLY MUST HAVE NEEDED THE WORK. ENJOY.
Wonderful Nostalgia Fluff
- chuck henry
I can see where this movie may have not done too well at its release. Carson and Morgan are not Hope and Crosby. But with the passage of time this movie has taken on an appeal due to its Nostalgia value. Look at all the cameo appearances by many of the great stars of the time. And who can resist the young ebullient Doris Day?And the ending is really good. For those of us who missed the Forties, this is a nostalgic romp, for those who lived thru the Forties, its fond memories. Highly recommended for being a great period piece.
