It has all the trappings of an entertaining musical, but the chemistry
is not there. A few of the musical numbers are worth seeing, but many
are mediocre at best. The most peculiar thing about the movie is its
substitution of boring, pedestrian new songs to take the place of Cole
Porter's songs. Although Jimmy Van Heusen certainly composed some good
songs in his day, the present "Ya Gotta Give the People Hoke," "Bounce
Right Back," and "A Second-Hand Turban" are embarrassing. The producers
couldn't find 3 more Cole Porter songs to use instead? Adding to the
embarrassment is the bowdlerization of the song "Anything Goes," in
which Mitzi Gayner is not even permitted to refer to authors'
"four-letter words." Instead, we are nonsensically told that authors
nowadays use only "three-letter words." Of course, such censoring of
the lyrics of this song negate the entire premise of the song, which is
that anything is permitted nowadays.
Donald O'Connor has a very nice dance routine with children and a lot
of bouncing balls in "Bounce Right Back," which is the most original
number in the film. The comedy duos by O'Connor and Crosby fall flat,
as does the vocal by Jeanmaire. Indeed, after hearing the mangled
arrangement of her trying to sing "I Get a Kick Out of You," I actually
stopped the movie and played a Frank Sinatra version in order to get
the bad taste out of my ears. Mitzi Gayner is lively and attractive and
does a good job in belting out her songs. Crosby is always good,
although the arrangement and photography of his performance of "All
Through the Night" were so anemic that one might doze through it,
without danger of anything happening to wake one up.
The plot is actually a very good basis for a musical comedy (a mix-up
in which both Gayner and Jeanmaire are hired for the same part), but
the writing is corny and stilted, there is little real humor, and the
comic potential of the situation is simply not realized. Although the
drama is of course not the most important part of a musical comedy, if
it does not help to motivate the songs and does not create any suspense
about what will happen, then the audience is just tapping its feet
waiting for the next musical number.
I think that if someone were to edit the film to include five or so of
the best musical numbers only (no plot, no weaker songs), one might
have 20 minutes of decent entertainment. But to watch the film for 106
minutes to get those 20 minutes of entertainment is not that pleasant.
