Edmund Purdom plays a Lawyer of dry wit and full of pomposity...Vic Damone plays a TV and Night Club singer..They romance two sisters played by Jane Powell and Debbie Reynolds....Louis Calhern is the Patriarch obsessed with health and fitness and is convinced that Astrology determines the future and the key to happiness......The numbers and stars in the sky suggest that Purdom/Powell, Damone/Reynolds are made for each other....However, the men need to drastically change their lifestyle to meet the ideals of healthy living..Most musicals have flimsy stories and believe me, this one is wafer thin....I honestly can't imagine it did too well at the Box Office in 1954 and the appeal was probably to the very young...The musical and dance numbers were very disappointing...Yes,Jane Powell looks and sings beautifully...."Love Can Change the Stars and Chacun Le Sait, from Daughters of the Regiment" are two I remember....Great voice of Vic Damone sings "The Boy Next Door" from Meet me in St. Louis, and "Venezia" on the back of a nice production number...Debbie Reynolds does a duet with Damone but is totally wasted....Steve Reeves, the real Mr. Universe of 1950,head a team of singing and dancing muscle men!....It has good sound and a nice print with colour by Eastman Colour,.For me the essential of a musical is that it's repeatable..Most of this is forgettable..I honestly don't think this one will get much wear and tear...But if I could I'd like to edit out and watch about 15 mins at most, and that's not much in a musical that runs for 113 mins! ......Star rating...I'd like to give it 2 &1/2 but I can't....Giving it a 2 means I didn't like it.....But I loved the voices of Powell and Damone.....I loved the Nostalgia...So I'm giving it a 3 star...I just want you to know the reason why..JJI

I love Vic Damone and Debbie Reynolds and when my 'Athena' dvd arrived I sat down to enjoy my musical only to discover that the film playing was a Robert Taylor 'Flight Command' even though the case showed the picture of 'Athena'. I was bitterly disappointed but am stuck with the dvd because being a pensioner I can't afford the return postage I'm expected to pay even though the fault is not mine

Iwas a bit disapointed with the film as the review said it was as good as seven brides for seven brothers, and I dont think it comes any where near as good as it,as that is one of my favorite films

4.0 out of 5 stars THOSE WONDERFUL MGM MUSICALS 20 Sept. 2013
By Patricia Simeon - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
i had never heard of this film before, but I was not disappointed at all. It's refreshing and funny all the way, not all fashioned like big budgets musicals of 1954 at MGM, I mean "Brigadoon" or "Rose Marie".....Of course, the storyline won't give you a headache, but who cares when Jane POWELL, Debbie REYNOLDS and Vic DAMONE are involved. The music is good and the songs are a treat, in stereo sound on this Archive Collection DVD. We even get all the deleted numbers as a bonus, with Edmond PURDOM singing with a strong baritone voice to Jane POWELL !!!!
4.0 out of 5 stars This is a fun movie with some of Hollywood's legends 10 Aug. 2016
By R. E. Jackson - Published on Amazon.com

This is a fun movie with some of Hollywood's legends, Jane Powell, Debbie Reynolds, with Reynolds in a supporting role. Plot may be a little predictable at times but it was fun with great musicals. The vocals by Vic Damone and Jane Powell were great, and Debbie Reynolds has a good one as well. All in all a fun musical from the Hollywood golden era.

4.0 out of 5 stars I loved how infectiously quirky Athena and her family 23 Jan. 2017

I first saw this movie as a little girl and it got me hooked on old 50's and 60's musicals. I loved how infectiously quirky Athena and her family were
2.0 out of 5 stars Oh, dear. 22 Jan. 2017
By bjj - Published on Amazon.com

How could I dislike a Jane Powell movie?!? This film has lots of talented performers, but apparently didn't budget for writers or composers. I'm such a fan of old musicals that I'll enjoy nearly anything, but this is just painful. It's the first musical I ever bought that I wish I hadn't.

4.0 out of 5 stars Another MGM musical gem uncovered 19 Aug. 2011
By MGM Musical Fan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
For those who love to watch or read about MGM musicals, Athena is a real treat. I first learned about it when Rhino Records released the newly remastered soundtrack some time ago. It may not be MGM's top musical, but it's great to revisit the MGM talent in a very good original film musical which was perhaps 20 years ahead of its time. The theme deals with healthy lifestyle living and nutrition. Jane Powell, Debbie Reynolds, and Vic Damone are at their peak and watch for Steve Reeves, better known for his Hercules film role. Great score by Meet Me In St. Louis team Martin and Blane. The tune Vocalize is one you will hum for days after first hearing. MGM musical fans enjoy!
