    i never even heard of this one before (although i have seen clips previously) and, typical of mgm musicals, it's chock full of misspent talent, talent overflowing, a veritable pool of talent (i make myself laff!). ricardo montalban is incredible, dancing with cyd charisse and swimming with esther flawlessly, the unexpected performance of a lifetime. jimmy durante is in-your-face with making you respect vaudeville, no small feat, and respect it you do after he is done. cyd charisse...is simply timeless perfection of dance. maestro xavier cugat ain't about to be outdone by anybody, and, in such talented company, even peter lawford dutifully turns in a decent showing. all this firepower and for a trifle, a cinnamon roll! zowie! and then, of course, rising from beneath the waves, her arms outstretched, her face beaming a smile as if she were glad to see us home, all of us, sweet mother of god, beaming, is esther herself!
