Du Barry Was a Lady est un film très étrangement construit, tiré d'un musical de Broadway composé par Cole Porter. On y trouve deux parties très distinctes. La première est un enchaînement plutôt réjouissant de gags et de chansons dans un cabaret dans lequel on retrouve Zero Mostel en affabulateur. La deuxième est un rêve du personnage de Red Skelton qui l'envoie à l'époque de Louis XV. Celle-ci est malheureusement beaucoup moins intéressante et beaucoup trop longue. Red Skelton, Lucille Ball et Gene Kelly forment pourtant un trio assez divertissant et font vivre leurs dialogues plutôt bien écrits. Mais rien n'y fait, Du Barry Was A Lady est très loin du niveau attendu.

Fun MGM musical is sort of a hodegepodge of everything plus the kitchen sink; Lucy looks ravishing in Technicolor, Skelton does his shtick, Kelly sings & dances (to Cole Porter's "Do I Love You?") , Tommy Dorsey & His Orchestra perform "Katie Went to Haiti," and the entire cast ends the film on a happy note with "Friendship."

Du Barry was a Lady is a decent film. It is about hat check man Louis Blore who is in love with nightclub star May Daly. Red Skelton, Lucille Ball, and Gene Kelly give good performances. The screenplay is a little slow in places. Roy Del Ruth did an alright job directing this movie. I liked this motion picture because of the music and humor.

Love me some Lucille Ball!! Although, her black maid is named Niagara, which I think is offensive to African Americans.. Pretty sure

ENJOYABLE MUSICAL COMEDY, RED SKELTON IS AT HIS COMIC BEST. LUCILLE BALL IS HIS CO STAR. VERY COLORFUL
