| Oh, You Lovely Picture: 'Beautiful Doll' ***1/2
Lively 1949 musical with Mark Stevens and June Haver in the leads. Did Mark do his own singing here?

The film is a tribute to those who wrote light opera and saw their music turned into wonderful vehicles for Tin Pan Alley. Such was the case here with S.Z. Sakall as the impresario.

Interesting to see Charlotte Greenwood in a totally non-singing and non-dancing role in this film.

Sakall tastes a climb from poverty to wealth as Stevens adopts his music to "modern" times. With a guilty conscience for not pursuing his opera, Sakall drops out, but is quickly found.

The tunes sung are delightful.
