I first fell in love with this movie (musical comedy) when I saw it on TCM channel. (When we actually had cable!) I just loved everything about the movie. I also adore Jane Powell. She isn't as well known as other actresses of her time (mostly due to losing roles on the account her growing up and maturing--and looking less "girl next door" but more womanly). Her voice is captivating and so pure sounding. She also is breathtaking!
I love seeing the girls love for their Mother and the want for her genuine happiness. They believe bringing their father back into her life will help her regain the happiness they feel she lost. Whatever happened to the love and respect for our parents?
This movie is very endearing and cute and has many great singing moments by Powell. It's one of those feel good movies that you can really get into. I love movies that make you feel good and this is one of them.
Now out on DVD. (finally!)
