      Steve D Cute enough but nothing special. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 06/11/23 Full Review Audience Member This is a charming sweet romantic comedy, which is pretty funny, but it could have been better. Overall a good movie, though, if you're a fan of Bing, you'll enjoy it. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/22/23 Full Review Audience Member Delightfully innocent Bing Crosby vehicle (with songs by Johnny Burke and Jimmy Monaco, the best being the Academy Award winning Only Forever)and co-written by Billy Wilder. The film plays like a rehersal for1942's Holiday Inn and support provided by Mary Martin and Basil Rathone, though the film is very nearly stolen by Oscar Levant. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/15/23 Full Review Read all reviews
