      steve d Not the least bit entertaining. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Audience Member The best musical movie ever made! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/26/23 Full Review Audience Member MGM's colorful circus musical is an old-fashioned delight marred only by an over-the-top finale with a pedestrian song ("Sawdust, Spangles & Dreams") by Roger Edens; Rodgers & Hart's songs, from the original 1935 production at the Hippodrome, include "My Romance," "Over and Over Again," and "Little Girl Blue." Doris Day's final on-screen musical. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/27/23 Full Review Audience Member It was okay. It didn't hold my attention really. I let it play through and glanced up every now and then but I didn't really seem to miss anything. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/17/23 Full Review Audience Member Doris Day shines and is a huge delight in this movie. I loved the songs and circus numbers in this movie! When Doris Day rolls them loaded dice and wins back the money, you know this movie will turn out good! Trust me it does! Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/22/23 Full Review Audience Member Did Stephen Boyd do his own singing in Jumbo? Please, "I gotsta know" Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 02/15/23 Full Review Read all reviews
