Its familiar tale of an ambitious chorus girl's sudden rise to fame is pleasant enough but not fresh enough to hold my attention.

It has Gene Kelly and Rita Hayworth to sing and dance. And virtually every nook and corner is draped with beautiful girls.

A creaking plot is made bearable by gorgeous colour, the even more gorgeous Hayworth, some oddly unsentimental and unsettling flashbacks with her playing her character's turn-of-the-century grandmother.

The story is pretty vacuous and the ending obvious, but it is still pleasant enough viewing with a clutch of toe-tapping tunes courtesy of Gershwin and Kern.

The whole thing, especially the comic stuff from Silvers and Arden, is executed with considerable brio. And Rudolph Maté's Technicolor photography is faultless.

TV Guide

Charming musical built on a skimpy plot but boasting a score by Jerome Kern and Ira Gershwin that includes some of their best work.
