20th Century Fox was no match for MGM when it came to musicals. Daryl
F. Zanuk decided to gamble with this film where the talents of a
Broadway star, Ethel Merman, would be showcased. Ms. Merman in spite of
being the toast of Broadway, never made it big in Hollywood. After all,
she was not a radiant beauty, but oh, could she belt a song that could
be heard at the top of the balcony! Phoebe and Henry Ephron were
brought on board to write the screen treatment and Walter Lang
The musical was also blessed in that Irving Berlin's music is heard
throughout in all its glory. Ms. Merman was the perfect actress to
interpret the songs written by Mr. Berlin. They made a perfect duo,
even though, for some viewers not used to Ethel Merman's singing style,
it might prove an uneasy combination.
The story is simple enough. It follows the Donahues from the early days
of vaudeville through some glittering years after. Molly and Terence
Donahue had two sons, Tim and Steve, and a daughter, Katy. As the
children grow up, the parents' popularity began to recede. The film
deals with Tim, as a young man, as he falls for Vicky Parker, a
beautiful singer who makes it big on her own. Vickie, who is more
interested in her own career neglects Tim. As a result, Tim goes on his
own to find himself, away from his family and Vickie.
The best thing in the film is Ethel Merman. She was a legendary figure
and as Molly Donahue, she is at her best. Dan Dailey was the perfect
partner for Ms. Merman. Donald O'Connor is also seen doing some fine
dancing. Marilyn Monroe was a lovely woman to look at. As a singer, she
had a small voice, but she used it well making the songs her own. Mitzi
Gaynor plays Katy. Johnnie Ray, a popular singer of that period is
terribly miscast. His Steve is the worst thing in the movie.
Although predictable, this film has some great things going for it.
Some of the musical numbers are well staged and will not disappoint. On
the whole as the camaraderie expressed by the title of the film is
evident in the musical.
