Disappointing
This is by far the most disappointing of all Betty Grable musicals I have seen. Shot in Fox's sumptuous Technicolor, "Mother Wore Tights" is not a bad viewing but it could have been better. It opens with Grable and her husband living in quiet senility. Then her voice-over enters the soundtrack and starts recalling the past, detailing her life and marriage with a fellow vaudevillean (Dan Dailey). The film proceeds in a glacial, disconcerting pace, and the songs are mainly excruciating and dull, the dance numbers & vaudeville acts overwrought. The only thing that kept me watching "Mother Wore Tights" was the gorgeous Technicolor.
