| Charming Nostalgia--and showbiz talent
This is a delightful glimpse of New York show business in the early 20th century. The story is appropriately corny and satisfyingly well acted, offering some charming songs and dances with some of the best performers in the 1950s, and a virtuoso turn by an old vaudevillian (James Barton) doing the kind of work we don't see onstage (or in movies) anymore. Barton's touching "drunk" dance in the bar, and his hilarious eccentric skating number at the end of the film show us a vivid picture of the kind of performing that was expected in the best days of vaudeville. The plot is predictable, but Gordon McCrae, June Haver, and Gene Nelson are a pleasure to behold, and Debbie Reynolds' debut gives a hint of what we could have expected from her. Also, it's as good as S.Z. Sakall ever was, and that's saying a lot. Watch it to experience a wave of nostalgia like none you've ever known.
