Red Hot and blue
Anything Betty Hutton did is worth being preserved and this film should be available for those of us who are old musical buffs on DVD, VHS, anything we could play at home. The *Hamlet*number in this film is brilliant!
Why a Comma
The comma is there because the title is a play on the colors of the American flag: "red, white, and blue". They just subbed "hot" for "white". Ergo, "red, hot and blue". It's not "(red hot) and blue".
Why the comma in Red, Hot?
Isn't the expression "Red Hot"? So why the comma after Red in the title "Red, Hot and Blue"? At any rate, this movie really is red hot (with no comma)! I only wish it would have been filmed in color. Betty is her wacky self, and she is in fine (read: yelling) voice. Vic Mature, one of the 1940s best leading men, is spot-on, as usual. And it's always fun to see June Havoc. She's the original Baby June who was a vaudeville performer as a child. Her sister was Gypsy Rose Lee, and their real life story was told in the musical "Gypsy."
she is red hot!
I was waching TCM last night. When Red,hot and Blue came on. The movie it else was not that great,but Betty Hutton was red hot and boy could she sing.I hope one day TCM can have all day movies of Betty Hutton.
Above average, near excellent

Supposedly this was not one of Betty Hutton's better films but you'd never know that by watching it today. It has so much great energy and entertainment value that it's hard not to get drawn into this film. It's also fun to see Betty working with Mr. Demarest after their earlier appearance in 'The Miracle of Morgan's Creek.' My favorite part of this film is the musical spoof on Hamlet. That was not only irreverent and wild, but just absolutely great. The way she ends that number, and they all wind up in a pile on the floor...I don't think I've ever seen anything like it! :)
WHERE ARE ALL THE BETTY HUTTON FILMS??!!
I read references to RED HOT AND BLUE, LET'S DANCE w/Fred Astaire, SOMEBODY LOVES ME, and THE ANGELS SING. Where are these movies - have they disappeared?
