This Collection of Betty Grable musicals is outstanding.
Down Argentine Way (with Carmen Miranda & Don Ameche), Moon Over Miami (with Don Ameche & Robert Cummings), The Dolly Sisters (with John Payne & June Haver) are three of her best Technicolor hits of the forties. My Blue Heaven (with Dan Dailey) is not in the same league with the others, but it is not bad - it just suffers by comparison. After the huge success of Mother Wore Tights, Fox paired Grable and Dailey several times but they never quite duplicated the magic. Even so, this collection will be enjoyed by lovers of colorful, tuneful, classic movie musicals. Hopefully we will see other Grable Collections with Tin Pan Alley, Footlight Serenade, Song Of The Islands, Coney Island, Diamond Horseshoe, Sweet Rosie O'Grady, Springtime In The Rockies, Mother Wore Tights, Shocking Miss Pilgrim & Wabash Avenue.

note: Since this review was written in 2006, Sweet Rosie O'Grady has been released on dvd.

Thank you to Fox for releasing these fun-filled, lavish and colorful musicals. Even if you are not actually a Grable fan (I am not), you will find all these films wholly entertaining.

If you enjoy musicals and escapist fare, it's hard to to do better. Don't look for plots, just look for exceptional entertainment values. The Fox musicals may not have been the summum of art (like MGM's for instance), but at the time, they were even more popular and exemplified escapist fun more than any other films around. And they hold up wonderfully (for this 33 year old at any rate!)

DOWN ARGENTINE WAY (1940) is resplendant with Latin-flavored (reproduced) locales, flashy costumes, verve, romance and a remarkable cast. That was the film that made Grable a household name, it's the US debut of Brazilian bombshell Carmen Miranda (singing some of her biggest hits). The Nicholas Brothers do an amazing dance number and the songs are all very memorable and blend in it the festive atmosphere. Almost a paid vacation in great company :-)

MOON OVER MIAMI (1941) is perhaps one of the most entertaining of all Fox musicals. The serviceable storyline of fortune-hunters passing off as heiresses helped to produce three hits for the studio, a straight comedy in 1938, this musical in 1941 and another musical in 1946. Exteriors were actually shot on location and it adds a lot to the vacation feel of the film. Hummable songs, snappy dances, breezy fun, the personable and affable Bob Cummings and the beautiful Carole Landis all add to create a really amusing, tuneful musicomedy. Technicolor at its zenith.

THE DOLLY SISTERS (1945) Grable is paired with the lovely June Haver.

"The Betty Grable Collection Vol. I"....I am already atingle.

Betty helped us through the darkest days of World War II...so

perhaps she can rekindle some of her magic now. We certainly

do need it. Anyway: FOUR wonderful films with Betty singing,

dancing and entertaining as only she can. It has been a long

time coming...and the title Vol. I...well...I have ordered Vol.I

and I am already ready for Vol. II. Betty's films are not like the films of today....everyone had to sidestep "THE CODE"...NO

NAVELS....just like "I Dream of Jeannie"!! But Betty was a

complete professional...and always come through. I love all

the films in this collection. "The Dolly Sisters" probably has

the most glitter...it also has an amazing sequence that is

politically incorrect and politically adventurous at the same time. "The Dark Town Strutters Ball" has always fascinated me.

Fox uses a line of absolutely gorgeous black show girls to

model a series of black and white costumes...IN COLOR...and then adds Betty Grable and June Haver in black face. It does look strange to us today. I suspect it was "on the edge" back

in 1947. Anyway....Betty will steal your heart away...she will sing you a song...and divert you with a figure and a pair of

legs that are still legendary. Don't expect too much from the

plots...they are there because these are movies...today they

would probably be Variety Shows on TV...but they are lovely entertainment...and you will enjoy them.

Oh boy, when Betty was firing she was certainly something. When? In every one of her movies, that's when! Here we see her at her sassy, talented best from the breakthrough ingenue in "Down Argentine Way" to the more mature role in "My Blue Heaven". And though this is the weakest of the four movies in this collection, just watch how she handles the dressing room scene where she walks in and finds Dan pashing Mitzi. Instead of exploding, she is the epitome of cool. She was cool in 1950 when nobody had coined the word. The scene was well written,true, but she delivered it with great panache. An underrated actress. Just watch the facial expressions in every number - she's alive. It's a pity her movie career wasn't extended and revitalised by the part of Adelaide in "Guys and Dolls". I even fantasize that she should have played "Sweet Sue" in "Some Like It Hot" - Joan Shawlee even LOOKED like a beefed-up Betty. Has this occurred to anyone else? But to get back to the collection - great value. A trip back to the carefree movie days when everyone looked fabulous, burst into song at the drop of a cliche, and had a happy ending. More, please.
