One Of My Favorites
on 20 November 2003
FLYING DOWN TO RIO is truly a pioneering musical made when such films were in the developmental stage. Many critics say that the movie is camp - but it is SO ENJOYABLE. Camp or not the movie is one of my favorites.
Ginger and Fred look like they have been dancing together for ages. It is hard to tell that this is their debut as a team. Dolores Del Rio is beautiful. Gene Raymond is a real pro.
The film has a huge cast with some great supporting actors such as Franklin Pangborn and Walter Walker.
I recommend FLYING DOWN TO RIO without reservation - especially if you like old musicals.
