A Delightful Trip Down Memory Lane
That said, I adored this movie because of the performances. Gene Kelly is absolutely stunning…a gorgeous man with a gorgeous voice and dance ability that would make the best Broadway “hoofer” jealous. His scenes and songs with Judy were top-notch.
I had never seen this film until recently, and I was delighted to see “Get Happy” was a part of this film. It’s one of the highlights of the movie, along with a special tap dance routine Gene Kelly has with a creaky floorboard and a piece of newspaper (wow, is all I can say about that one).
See this movie because of the stars…they carried it. A truly fun and enjoyable film, despite its flaws.
