Been after a copy for ages...Thank goodness this one has the original track....The sound is good but the picture looks more like it's Color by Delux and not TECHNICOLOR....Looks as if it's had a rinse....But still ok viewing...Woman (Grable) looks back on her life in show biz.Started dancing in San Francesco Vaudville house where she meets fellow hoofer(Dan Dailey)...Fall in love,marry and form song and dance act..Along come the kids and they become part of the act and learn to live out of a suitcase...Years pass,parents have retired and children(Mona Freeman,Connie Marshall) go to college..But then Mum and Dad decide to pull the act out of mothballs and are booked to perform in a theatre near their campus..Oh the shame! ha..Musical score won an Academy Award but I didn't think it was that great..Also nominated for best song "You Do"..Whatever happened to that!Sunk without trace I think...You WON'T need a special DVD player to view this version..

Family Fare 31 Oct 2003
By Lidash63 - Published on
This movie is an all time favorite for my children and me. Great family "values" with close family trying to stay together despite parents' jobs in show business and adolescent girls not wanting "to be seen" with parents. Much warmth with fabulous, uplifting old vaudeville tunes--great singing and dancing--kids of all ages love it. It is so obvious that there was strong, mutual admiration between Dan Dailey and Betty Grable.

Old Fashioned Fun 5 Dec 1999
By Brad - Published on
This movie has given my daughter and I hours of fun! The dance scenes make your feet tap and the songs are sweet. I love to watch the chemistry between Betty Grable and her co-stars. The children are fun and good actresses themselves.The values taught are still great for today! It's great to see Senior Wenses with his hand puppet! I love this movie!A mother/daughter favorite!

How prettily Grable ages from a teenager to a grandma! 28 July 1999
By Tom McGee - Published on
Shock: This film opens with a shot of Betty Grable in a rocking-chair busily knitting! But not for long! We are quickly whipped back in time to the end-of-term musical at Oakland High, and there is Grable, a lovely, leggy teenager dancing her heart out.
This was the first teaming of Grable and Dan Dailey and he proved a lively partner. The couple hit it off right away and their screen charm came over well in this touching family story of the problems this vaudeville pair had bringing up a family while still 'on the road.' Betty and Dan fairly romp through some fine singing and dancing. Easily one of Betty's finest movies.

Fun For the Family 15 Dec 2005
By Samantha Glasser - Published on
Mother Wore Tights is a story about a vaudeville dancer and her life through the narration of her second daughter. It is a sweet story filled with music, romance, and family.

Betty Grable is excellent in this film. Her character ages from being a teenager to an adult to a mother to and elderly grandmother. Unlike actresses who age so much in other films, Grable is highly believable at each point in her character's life and she is also quite beautiful too.

Dan Dailey plays Grable's husband, a somewhat awkward man with great confidence and nimble dancing ability. He makes a great match with Grable.

The two children, Iris and Mikie, are played by Mona Freeman and Connie Marshall. Each are great in their parts and help to make the story interesting as it goes along. Without them, the film would not have been as good.

This film is filled with songs, none of them randomly sung out of the blue to express emotion, but because the characters are performing in vaudeville or because they feel like singing a song for fun. "Who Knows How Much I Love You?" is sung several times in the film, each time becoming more and more beautiful and meaningful. "Kokomo, Indiana" is sung twice in the film and is a catchy, happy song. The costumes used in the stage numbers are traditional and gorgeous, not too flashy.

This film combines the joviality of music and the sentiment of family. For those who enjoy these two genres of film, see this one!

....Grable....always a star... 5 April 1999
By A Customer - Published on
...Fox is finally beginning to make a few more of those wonderful Betty Grable films available...and "Mother Wore Tights" --well, they say it was Betty's favorite...and certainly the chemistry between she and Dan Dailey is great... Grable films are FUN and this one is especially fun...Betty wins Dan's heart and yours and mine and anyone who happens to be passing by the TV while you are running this. She does a little bit of everything...and in true Grable fashion she does it very curl up and enjoy a good old fashioned silly musical with THE great artist of silly musicals...Georgeous Betty Grable.
