Was looking so forward to this movie that I saw 60 years ago as a girl of 10. It was lots of fun with great songs, just like I remembered. That is until I got to the ending which I did not remember but it was the code of the day. I believed her performance of the love-struck girl who was punished for being talented and had to give up her power (and self) to win the love of a totally self-absorbed man. This was the 50s where the women wore gloves and shirtwaists that showed off their boobs and tiny waists even if we had to be tortured to get one. Worn a girdle or a waist cincher belt lately? What a crock of --- was sold to us impressionable children.
If you are watching this with a child be sure to point out that women can be strong and smart and this is not a good way to "get a man."
