Ditected by Michael Curtiz (Casablanca), this musical marks the feature debut of Doris Day, and its best part are the songs, including the Oscar-nominated tune, It's Magic.

Romance On The High Seas is a lighthearted comedy with plenty of opportunity to listen to Doris Day sing.

Audience Reviews for Romance on the High Seas


Ultra colorful late 40"s musical, the technicolor practically jumps off the screen. Doris' first movie and she's a total delight, bursting with energy and charisma. Beautiful Oscar winning song "It's Magic".
