Betty Grable plays Kay Latimer, who decides to pool her resources with her aunt (Charlotte Greenwood) and sister (Carole Landis) and together they travel to Miami in hopes of snaring rich husbands. Grable soon finds herself torn between Don Ameche and Robert Cummings. All manner of romantic complications arise before the story rushes to it's inevitible happy ending.
Betty Grable is luminous in the lush Technicolor photography; Carole Landis provides good support as sister Barbara, and Charlotte Greenwood is her usual wisecracking self as Aunt Susie. Don Ameche and Robert Cummings realize that this is Grable's show and wisely don't overplay their performances.
One of Grable's best movies to be sure.
The new DVD edition from Fox's "Marquee Musicals" series presents a very nice print of the movie with fully-saturated Technicolor. Extra features include the various Betty Grable trailers, plus a bonus set of postcard-sized lobbycards.
Still working her way to the top, and with no luxury to plead any disinclination, Hermes Pan really puts her through her paces.
Here she is paired with both the Condos Brothers, and then none other than Mr. Pan himself--each time to superb results!
"You Started Something" is a joyous explosion of intricate stepping performed on a tropical patio. No laziness on evidence here. And just about as impressive is the Conga routine where she demonstrates a variety of terpsichorean felicities--(all with trademark shimmy intact).
Then there's "Seminole," a display of amazing speed and agility by the Condos Brothers which proves once and for all that Michael Jackson did not invent the reverse slide.
Add lavish settings, effective location shots, hummable tunes, glamourous gowns, (not to mention the considerable visual charms of Carole Landis) and you have the perfect Technicolor celluloid parfait.
Unquestionably one of Miss Grable's best.
