I can't understand why this film is not commercially available; it has all the ingredients for a DVD release. As Fox is currently releasing many of its musicals, hopefully this one will follow suit. Hayworth (who looks beautiful throughout, her singing dubbed as usual, but her dance numbers are never dull), was romantically involved with Mature at the time of filming. Their chemistry is good, but not as strong as the electricity she shared with her five-time costar, Glenn Ford. Phil Silvers, in a small part here, would later costar with Hayworth in "Cover Girl" (1944).
This is a throughly enjoyable movie that deserves lavish DVD treatment.
To makes even better, this would have to be one of the best transfers from Fox, surpassing their restored musicals. It looked great pojected on a 100" screen.
Not the cheapest DVD around, but I'd rather pay the extra for such a quality DVD transfer.
visual quality is outstanding and the sound which was so bad on video
is really great. A total new discovery for me !
This is besides "Cover Girl" and "You were never lovelier " Hayworths most
ALL the songs are wonderful, the dancing of Rita especially with Hermes Pan is great and even Victor Mature who never was a musical star is pretty good as Paul Dresser who wrote most of the music that was used for this movie.
To bad that Fox only honors Betty Grable with a special box. They could make one with the three Rita movies "My Gal Sal" "Blood and Sand" and "Tales of Manhattan" which still is not on DVD. Although Rita was "the" Columbia Star of the forties, it was Fox who had build her up as a major star.
RIta ... now there's another story! So beautiful, charming, and feminine in the old fashioned sense (not crass, "manly," or witchy as the normal models of womanhood since the 1980s). Sadly, there's much more of Victor in this film than Rita who appears at least 30 minutes into it (seems like much longer).
I did find Victor Mature loutish in the role of the composer and his performance amateurish. I just could not take to his character, and I wondered what the character, played by Rita Hayworth, ever saw in him. I just did not sense any chemistry between these two erstwhile lovers.
Rita Hayworth does look absolutely gorgeous in this film but that alone is insufficient for me to recommend this film, which I found to be somewhat tedious. Rita Hayworth, however, gives an excellent performance, as does the supporting cast. Rent this film rather than buy it, and judge for yourself.
