Editorial Reviews

In 1960, a bright young cast made college musicals hip again with the surf-sand-and-sexcapade Where the Boys Are. Two graduates of that smash hit - Connie Francis and Jim Hutton - reunite for this kooky comedy about a girl who can't decide if she wants to be a star (she sings), a housewife (babies! 'burbs!) or an entrepreneur (she's invented a doohickey to keep clothes from wrinkling). A host of stars - including Where the Boys Are's George Hamilton, Yvette Mimieux and Paula Prentiss - pop up in cameos. And add another well-known face: Johnny Carson makes his big-screen debut playing himself interviewing our ditzy heroine on The Tonight Show.

This product is manufactured on demand using DVD-R recordable media. Amazon.com's standard return policy will apply.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Only Movie that Showcases Connie Francis September 5, 2011
I admit I am a fan, but I do go along with what Ms. Francis has stated many times "I'm no actress". To a degree she is correct. Connie was almost the sole source of income for MGM Records and their movie division thanks to her massive record sales as the largest selling female vocalist of all time. She made her screen debut in the smash era defining "Where The Boys Are". For moviegoers, this was misleading. All the movie marquees had her billed as the star when in fact, she had one of the smaller female parts. She sang only the multi million selling title and one other number.

Her follow up movie, given top billing, was filled with so many silly subplots, Connie sing only 3 songs including the hit title.

"Looking For Love" is the only one of her 4 movies where Francis is really the star. Unfortunately she is hampered by a weak and somewhat silly script. The movie is a throwback to the screwball comedies of the 30s with Francis playing a singer who decides to give show biz one more shot and if she fails, she dreams of marrying a doctor and having lots of babies. She invents a contraption called "The Lady Valet" to hang clothes on for women on the go to wear the next morning to work which interests her roommate's (Susan Oliver) co-worker (Jim Hutton from Where The Boys Are". Francis misconstrues his interest for love. Enter Cuz Rickover, a grocery clerk and bass fiddle player (Joby Baker) who falls immediately for Connie after she destroys the grocery store. She is a last minute replacement on a Danny Thomas special for Gaye Swinger (Barbara Nichols, also from Where The Boys Are"). Not fully rehearsed, her musical number turns into another quite funny fiasco. I won't give the "tag" away, but Francis believes she'll know true love when she is kissing, she will hear bells ringing.

It's a wonderful Connie Francis movie for those of us who are fans of Connie. I've beena fan since I was a teenager. It's a light musical comedy that showcases her singing.

4.0 out of 5 stars Here's Johnny June 27, 2012
This movie contains Johnny Carson's finest movie performance. Also great to see Connie Francis in her very own showcase. Look for a cameo by Yvette Mimeux.

4.0 out of 5 stars Connie Stars At Last July 30, 2013
By JL
Verified Purchase
The release of this movie was a long time in coming on either VHS or DVD. Thanks, Amazon, for finally making it happen. I wish a few of the musical numbers had been completed in the movie, instead of being abruptly ended, though I understand why the makers wanted to do this - for the story's sake. It was a joy to finally see Connie again in this movie after almost 40 years. Johnny Carson said that he HATED his performance in this movie. It was rumored that he was the one that kept MGM from releasing it. Who knows that the truth is....Anyway...enjoy Connie. She was so young and pert and cute. And, of course, her voice was in top condition.

5.0 out of 5 stars Connie Francis In Her Best Film ! March 25, 2013
Looking For Love is my favorite Connie Francis film. She does a wonderful comedic role as Libby Caruso. She sings Looking For Love, When The Clock Strikes Midnight, Whoever You Are, I Love You, Let's Have A Party, Be My Love, I Can't Believe That You're In Love With Me, and This Is My Happiest Moment. At the time Connie was the number one female pop singer. Able support is provided by the ever flashy Barbara Nichols. Connie's next film is When The Boys Meet The Girls.
