    It's fairly easy to see Sidney Sheldon's hand in this rather silly film. He was always a bit over the top in everything he wrote and this is no exception. The gowns and sets are beautiful, as was MGM's style then. The film is worth watching to hear the beautiful Ann Sothern sing "Magic Is the Moonlight" and the glorious-voice of Jane Powell singing the aria "Quando Me'n Vo'" from the opera "La Boheme." The appearance of the delightful Carmen Miranda is all too brief but enjoyable nonetheless. As an aside, I have always had a problem with classically trained singers, e.g. Jane Powell and Deanna Durbin, singing "pop" in film alongside opera. Sing one or the other but not both as it spoils all in the film. Powell, in "Seven Brides for Seven Brothers" was just terrific but she didn't sing any opera. We lost two grand voices in the opera world when Durbin and Powell made films instead. More's the pity...

  • Maltin underrates this

    This is a bright, charming, delightful musical. And, I think, much better than the Deanna Durbin original, which I found pretty stale.

  • Great musical with a lot to offer

    I haven't seen the original with Deanna Durbin ('It's a Date' will be on TCM in a few days)...but I really enjoyed this film. Every actor contributes significantly to the finished film. Ann Sothern and Jane Powell look great, and they are at the top of their game, singing and dancing. Louis Calhern also does a number in a rare musical role. Plus, Barry Sullivan adds charm as the leading man, and Hans Conreid, in a bit part, is letter-perfect as ever. But Carmen Miranda is the one that steals the movie with two show-stopping numbers. The script, by Sidney Sheldon, has a lot of humor in it. It is filmed in glorious Technicolor and there is some good on-location footage of Rio, including the carnival/parade at night. This is just a very pleasing effort, and I would recommend that moms and daughters watch it on Mother's Day...that would be a perfect day for TCM to rebroadcast it. And fortunately, it is on DVD.
