Forget the cheese - 'for what it's worth - I love you'! Just enjoy the costumes [feathers, sequins, etc], listen to the music and see the drama unfold. Doris Day in this film is at her musical peak, the phrasing, the delivery are just matchless - there isn't a single 'bum' note in the entire film. Just as an aside, Ruth Etting the character played by Doris Day had a far inferior singing voice - Doris's interpretation of Etting's song book is a slice of the 'divine'. If you only watch this film for the songs, you will not be disappointed - couple the music with Cagney at his most charismatic and you have a winner. Listen, watch and enjoy. The price of the DVD was worth every last cent.
