The Leading Ladies Make This Work
31 October 2006 | by HandlinghandelSee all my reviews

In 1946, Martha Vickers appeared as the thumb-sucking bad-girl sister in "The Big Sleep." A year later she is in this standard song-and-dance film. But there's nothing standard about her. Nor is there about the other leading lady, Janis Paige.

Holy smokes! And these girls are mad for Jack Carson (always likable, -- to a point) and Robert Hutton! (He's handsome but not too charismatic.) Otto Kruger is elegance itself as Vickers's millionaire father. There's something a little peculiar about the subplot in which he is mistaken for a paramour. He looks as if he indeed could be one.

Florence Bates is delightful as a dirty-minded, meddling landlady.

The movie is fun. Unfortunately, it's a musical. The music is the sort of crooning I associate with Dean Martin when I was a kid -- not to my taste. But the cast is game. And Vickers and Paige are tops!
