Per IMDb, this is Day's second movie. Since I know her mostly from her work in the 60s in movies and TV, it was fascinating to see her a bit younger in a 1949 flick. Full disclosure, I am a huge Doris Day fan. Her sweet and sometimes sassy personality combined with her beauty and voice strike the troika of near perfection for me.

I am not a big fan of "musicals" but this one was entertaining. The music was blended smoothly into the movie and advanced the plot. Day had great chemistry with the other actors, and I found myself rooting for her and her agent and pulling for a happy ending. This movie had a 50's-60's feel to me, a little ahead of its time. I enjoyed being immersed in the culture of 1949. I was also surprised that I did not find Day as attractive at this age as I found her when she was 10-20 years older.

I suppose this is a pretty traditional drama/musical for its time and not particularly groundbreaking, but I found it entertaining, unexpectedly so.

About my reviews: I do not offer a synopsis of the film -- you can get that anywhere and that does not constitute a meaningful review -- but rather my thoughts and feelings on the film that hopefully will be informative to you in deciding whether to invest 90-180 minutes of your life on it.

My scale: 1-5 decreasing degrees of "terrible", with 5 being "mediocre" 6- OK. Generally held my interest OR had reasonable cast and/or cinematography, might watch it again 7 - Good. My default rating for a movie I liked enough to watch again, but didn't rise to the upper echelons 8- Very Good. Would watch again and recommend to others 9- Outstanding. Would watch over and over; top 10% of my ratings 10 - A Classic. (Less than 2% receive this rating)
