Trivia

One of very few soundtrack albums in the 1950s that gave credit to the actual vocalists as opposed to masking the fact that several of the film's stars were dubbed. As such, Robert Farnon and Anita Ellis receive full credit on the disc label for the singing voices they supplied for Scott Brady and Jeanne Crain, and Miss Crain herself receives credit for her unexpectedly hilarious vocal in the "I Wanna Be Loved By You" number.

What a waste.
13 January 2004 | by gary1792See all my reviews

I saw this turkey for the first time last night. I tuned in expecting an entertaining sequel to the classic "Gentlemen Prefer Blondes" starring Marylin Monroe and (as in this movie) Jane Russell.

To say I was disappointed is being generous. Alan Young singing? For heaven's sake, what were these people thinking?

The world would be better served if this pile of celluloid was cut up into guitar picks.
