The last of MGM's lavish composer biographies, this time the life of Sigmund Romberg; a notch above many of the others of its ilk, thanks mostly to the mugging of star Jose Ferrer, who sings and dances and brings some much-needed energy to the film; musical highlights include Ferrer and opera star Helen Traubel performing the "Leg of Mutton;" Cyd Charisse and James Mitchell in a passionate dance to "One Alone;" Ann Miller tap-dancing to "It;" and Gene Kelly and his brother Fred doing "I Love to Go Swimmin' with Women." Ferrer's then-wife, Rosemary Clooney, performs briefly with him to the song "Mr. & Mrs."

I finally get Anna Russell's joke about Josà (C) Ferrer.

Forced and contrived, but still it was a relatively upbeat and lively musical where you are thrown from situation to song and back. Fantastic score, but I assume it all came from his great works. I had never heard of Romberg, so it was a informative yet drastically melodramatic; a typical musical with a weak plot. The dubbing was painfully distracting at times. Good thing it was rated R on Flixster.

Great music with some terrifically staged and performed numbers but has several heavy doses of schmaltz thrown in, particularly towards the ending.

Tedious plotline but great musical numbers with an assortment of MGM's musical stars of the mid-1950s. Ann Miller's "It" is a highlight as is the torridly erotic "Desert Song" number with Cyd Charisse and James Mitchell. Skip the plot and go for the numbers on the DVD!

Surprising entertaining despite its somewhat stilted story.

This was a lot of fun. Life story of the composer means lots of singing and dancing set pieces. Gene Kelly does a great one with his brother.

This musical was a complete train wreck. Unlikeable characters, boring singing, awful, almost CREEPY dancing (tragic waste of Gene and Fred Kelly as well as Cyd Charisse). And I've never heard of this composer before-- now I know why- his music is bad!

The Ann Miller number 'It!' and Gene and Fred Kelly's number 'I love to go swimmin' with women' are excellent!!!! A must see!!

I watched this movie out of the corner of my eye, and from an intuitive sense, I think it's outstanding! But I'm going to watch it again to confirm.
