      Steve D A bit different but one of her weakest outings. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 06/20/23 Full Review Audience Member Even though I’m not big on musicals this was pretty good and I recommend it James Welch, Henderson, Arkansas March 12, 2023 Rated 3 out of 5 stars 03/14/23 Full Review Audience Member Deanna's in fine voice and looks great in Technicolor. The film itself is a trifle with zero relation to everyday life, Deanna travels all the way across country in a wagon train in frilly pastel gowns and saucer curls!, but if you like the sort of musical that is divorced from reality this is a pleasant time passer. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/27/23 Full Review Audience Member Gorgeous location photography in Technicolor highlights this OKLAHOMA-inspired Deanna Durbin musical; the lilting Jerome Kern melodies include the title tune and "More and More." Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/27/23 Full Review Audience Member a list musical with a western motiff and loads of talent! Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/25/23 Full Review Audience Member It has it's many moments and the color is breathtaking! Some good misunderstandings.
