    Love this film for its jazzy music and pop songs of the era. Also, the fashions. I remember playing my fathers newly bought Connie Haines records on his new 45RPM record player, the only record player (or phonograph) that he let "the kids" touch.

  • nice to see while napping...

    Gave it 3 stars because Van Johnson is worth that on a bad day; did not know he was such a swingin' dancer... AND because John Lund is quite funny. I thought he was funny in High Society, too. The other star-worthy moment was when Esther Williams was made queen with a POTATO CROWN. Now, that was rich. Another mellow moment was when Johnson as bandleader calls Eleanor Powell out of the audience and she doesn't want to dance for the crowd, Oh No, she refuses to dance, and then Zippo! off comes her ballgown skirt and she commences tapping.Otherwise, the plot was so very contorted that I found it hard to follow, and then I gave up trying. I missed seeing Mel Torme and Lena Horne, I got so tired, so very tired...

    This is one of my all time favorites. I was very disappointed to learn it was NOT a part of TCM's Esther Williams Collection. The musical numbers are awesome! I also remember the marvelous Lena Horne in this movie. This shows Ms. Williams and, one of my favorites, Van Johnson, at their best. I hope it will be released very, very soon.

  • DVD, DVD!!!

    My Father was a member of the singing group on the Train sequence. I wish I could find a copy of the movie. I was not born until 1951 but my father was in this movie in 1950. Its would be a treasure to me to have a copy a of it.

  • DVD!
