I loved this movie, because it was sheer, delightful entertainment. It was post-World War 2 and what the movie-going audience seemed to be "eating up" during that time in our history. First of all, it had a wonderful look to it - the sunny southern California locale, handsome co-star, Lee Bowman and romantic not-so-handsome co-star, Jack Carson. The story has some dark undertones when Doris Day finds herself duped into believing the object of her desire is nothing more than an egotistical, spotlight-grabbing, soon-to-be "has-been". However, the songs are bright and beautiful and Doris Day has never had a better showcase for her talent. This movie will take you away to an innocent time, if only for a little while.
