A musical that fails as an entertainment partly because the main character exudes little charisma and partly because the musical numbers are few and far between lacking any hummable tunes. A major disappointment.
Easily one of my favorite musicals and most people never heard of it. I had to special order it on dvd and the transfer isn't very good unfortunately. This really is a wonderful movie and it would be a shame for it to fade into obscurity. Ann Blyth is beautiful and a talented singer but Mario Lanza is the true star of the film who only supplies the singing voice of "Prince Karl". Great performances all around and the older cast are so lovable. This is S.Z. Sakall's last film and I think he had simply a great personality! If you are a big fan of musicals then find it and buy it.
