The story of a bandleader and his wife, a flapper script girl, set during the Great Depression. Marilyn Monroe appears as an extra in this jolly musical. Shown in 4:3 full frame presentation.

I saw this film as a spiritual, almost religous event. Dan Dailey plays with considerable skill and charm a somewhat successful band leader derailed by the 1929 economic collapse. Jeanne Crain is his much younger and loving wife. Oscar Levant hangs around delivering brilliant piano work and acerbic charm. Underlining the light presentation is a set of core beliefs encompassing hope, hard work, and good old American know how. I love the film and related to it personally and professionally.

The DVD transfer from Fox is quite good.

5.0 out of 5 stars good remake October 24, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The story is very like " The orchastra wives". It was enjoyable. The dvd was good, good picture and sound. I wish there where more movies like this. I cant stand all the swearing and nudity in movies today. Hollywood really put out good movies in the forties and early fifties.

I am a fan of Jeanne Crain, Dan Dailey, and Barbara Lawrence. There is so much style in Dailey's dancing.Now we need "Give My Regards to Broadway."
