Carnival folks in comedy of mistaken identity.
This is a mildly amusing and good-natured musical which features
the individual stars doing the things they do, and never rises above
Apart from an early ducking Esther takes a long time to get wet,
and when she does it's absurd but enjoyable, as she swims around
a dry and pining Howard Keel in a dream. Red Skelton has some rather
tedious comic routines. The songs are fine but not classic Fields,
although I'm rather partial to the tongue-in-cheek Whoa, Emma.
|Notes on songs: These songs were written for the film. Two songs called Love is a Lovely Word and You've Got a Face Full of Wonderful Things were not used in the final film. |
All the Fields songs are available as bonus material on the CD
recording of Lovely To Look At.
