Lovely To Look At

Director: Mervyn LeRoy Studio: MGM Year: 1952
Stars: Kathryn Grayson, Red Skelton, Howard Keel, Marge Champion, Gower Champion, Ann Miller   Video: A video is generally available.
Interesting cast in remake of Roberta.
Notes on songs: Lovely to Look At comes from the film Roberta and no lyric changes were made.

Otherwise, Dorothy Fields wrote new lyrics as follows:

For three songs, entirely new lyrics were written for songs which had previously had different names and Otto Harbach lyrics.

Opening Night replaced Don't Ask Me Not To Sing; The Most Exciting Night replaced Armful of Trouble; Lafayette was based on Clementina .

Fields revised the lyric for I'll Be Hard to Handle (originally by Bernard Dougall), You're Devastating (Harbach) and her own I Won't Dance.

The song When We Were Young does not appear in the film.

A CD recording is available.
