      Kim Newman Empire Magazine A creaking plot is made bearable by gorgeous colour, the even more gorgeous Hayworth, some oddly unsentimental and unsettling flashbacks with her playing her character's turn-of-the-century grandmother. Rated: 3/5 Nov 28, 2012 Full Review Variety Staff Variety Dance sequences spotlighting the terping abilities of Hayworth and Kelly are expertly staged. Mar 26, 2009 Full Review Time Out The whole thing, especially the comic stuff from Silvers and Arden, is executed with considerable brio. And Rudolph Mat's Technicolor photography is faultless. Jun 24, 2006 Full Review Elena de la Torre Cine-Mundial First class fun. [Full review in Spanish] Sep 16, 2019 Full Review Christopher Machell CineVue This is what we're here for, larger than life emotions played out with unparalleled skill and imagination. Rated: 3/5 Feb 13, 2017 Full Review TV Guide Charming musical built on a skimpy plot but boasting a score by Jerome Kern and Ira Gershwin that includes some of their best work. Rated: 4/4 Nov 28, 2012 Full Review Read all reviews

      Alec B Gene Kelly's influence on the choreography is obvious with several sequences joyously escaping the staging conventions of the time. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/09/24 Full Review StephenPaul C LOL, the funniest 01 hour: and 47 minutes ever with music!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 06/07/23 Full Review Mark A Rita Hayworth is gorgeous! Rated 4 out of 5 stars 12/20/22 Full Review david f Some beautiful dancing, and some dry wit of the old Hollywood Studio System screenwriters in this great Rita Hayworth/Gene Kelly film. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member The production was way ahead of its time. Plot is mediocre; the actors, music, and performances are what make the movie enjoyable. There is a slight touch of comedy which is also helpful. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/29/23 Full Review Audience Member Wacky costumes, big stars....but a bare bones plot and forgettable songs. Best thing about the movie is Eve Arden ...she was ahead of her time. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/24/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating
