This 1954 film features a song-and-dance number from each of Romberg's musicals, performed by popular guest stars. Ferrer sings and dances surprisingly well, and gives a light-hearted performance. If you are already familiar with Romberg's tunes, you'll find yourself singing along. It's done in the old MGM-style with beautiful color, sumptious sets and costumes, and wholesome family values. An uplifting, entertaining movie.
That Kelly lad sure can dance. Fred Kelly that is, in his only credited film role, he and legendary brother Gene Kelly happily hoof with an “l Love to Go Swimmin’ with Wimmen” specialty romp in this colourful musical biopic about Sigmund Romberg, the ex-piano man who went on to compose some 8O productions. There’s much more to love, too. Ann Miller gams and glams It (from The Desert Song). Jane Powell and Vic Damone remember “Will You Remember (Maytime).” José Ferrer as Sigmund Romberg demos all the roles of a gleefuljazza-Doo spree. And before Deep in My Heart is sung, danced and jazza-done, you’ll find Cyd Charisse, Merle Oberon, Howard Keel and more. The talent runs deep. So does the fun.
FILM FACT: The costumes in the "It" number were recycled from the "Beautiful Girls" number in ‘Singin' in the Rain’ . One female dancer is wearing Cyd Charisse's green flapper dress from the "Broadway Melody" Ballet. During the Mr. and Mrs. Number, José Ferrer was actually singing and dancing with his then-wife Rosemary Clooney, who was pregnant at the time. In an interview José Ferrer disclosed that he had to redo the "Jazza-Jazza-Doo-Doo" routine several times because the crew kept laughing out loud and interfering with the sound track. The director finally cleared the set of everyone not needed to film the segment and this time they got it on film. Gene Kelly's dance partner in the "I Love to go Swimmin' with Wimmen" number is his younger brother, Fred.Read more ›
However, the stand out performance is undoubtedly JOSE FERRER as Sigmund Romberg, a performance worthy of an Oscar.
If you like superb music, superb singing, and superb dancing, this is the movie for you.
