Bing Crosby, Frank Sinatra, and Grace Kelly with Louis Armstrong… how can you go wrong? Haven’t seen this movie before and I went with a lady who was there when they were filming. That was an added bonus. Great movie, can’t wait for the next one.
A great cast: Crosby, Sinatra,Luis Armstrong; songs by Cole Porter; snappy dialogue. It was heaven.
While Walters is no Cukor, he's not without his pleasures. His simple but polished shooting style, once a routine satisfaction of the cinema, carries the aura of a long-lost classical grace.
It suffers from stilted Vista Vision staging and a lack of gloss -- but has some sparkling Cole Porter musical numbers. [26 Sep 1999, p.26C]
