Delightfully Dangerous (1945)
In her second starring film, teenaged singing sensation Jane Powell plays Cheryl Williams, a 15-year-old music student who is led to believe that her older sister Josephine (Constance Moore) is a big Broadway star.

The fun begins when Cheryl arrives in New York, figures out the truth, and tries to marry Josephine off to big-time Broadway producer Arthur Hale (Ralph Bellamy). As a result, both Josephine and Cheryl are starring in Hale's latest production. Yes, it's a Deanna Durbin picture without Deanna, right down to newly arranged versions of old operetta favorites.

All of fifteen she is perky and natural in front of the camera already and her voice if you are a fan of light opera is wonderful. While strictly a B picture it still has a good cast backing her up with Ralph Bellamy for once not playing the dumb snook.More
