    A very unique, though equally silly, musical, starring incredibly talented James Cagney. He had wonderful rapport both with Virginia Mayo (whom he worked with on White Heat) and the relative showbiz newcomer Doris Day. Pedestrianly directed, it would have fallen flat in a lesser cast's hands, but is raised by the charm, charisma and talent involved to a fine level.

    Cagney rises above musical material, and even dances!

    1: Awful picture with virtually no redeeming qualities. I know why Cagney made it, he loved musicals and was patriotic and it fit his persona, but he doesn't give much of a performance. Doris Day and her charisma is about the only bright spot in this ho-hum and tired story.

    The story is pretty interesting, the performances are fantastic (especially James Cagney who delivers and especially entertaining performance) , and the musical numbers are spectacular. The writing isn't perfect but overall, it's a good time.

    VERY talented cast in completely ordinary musical with no memorable songs and a hokey story. Everyone has been seen to better advantage elsewhere.

    Festlig, men snabbt glömd musikal, men med James Cagney och Doris Day har man inte tråkigt.
