Audience Reviews for Happy Go Lovely

Amusing comedy musical, some fair musical numbers. Good cast, especially Niven but the film is rather ordinary and unmemorable. Cute though.

I never thought of watching oldish movie but since the title itself attracted me much, then after watching it; yes it is very attractive movie to see :))) Vera Ellen was wonderfully played Janet Jones who was accidentally involved in fake romance with millionaire BJ Bruno (who she thought Paul Tracey; an ordinary editor working for newspaper). Bruno fell in love completely with Jones at his first sight. He kept playing his role as "Paul Tracey". In the end she was fallen in love with him and didnt know he was the real Bruno til the end of her big show. Very cute and romantic plot, Vera Ellen's so talented ballet dancer. I wish I cud see this in real broadway. Love the dresses, costumes, very fashionably played and romantic :) Oh.. I love the stage too.. it was very pretty for 1951 era! And again.. for 1951? Those dresses and outfit was very fascinating and very very fashionable thing to wear!! I can't beliv myself 1951 got much better fashion than 2000-ish.. ;p
