| Saw this in Korea in the outdoors
I was stationed in Korea for a year during the spring offensive , heartbreak ridge, etc. and they showed this movie one night. We loved it. Satchmo singing a "kiss to build a dream on" was fantastic. And would you believe we had the projectionist replay the Sally Forrest dance scene a dozen times!I gave this movie a 7 because it brought back memories after 50 years, even though ,aside from the good jazz, and Sally Forrest, the acting and story was mediocre. I only regret that it isnt on VHS.
