As Delightful As It Is Corny, Thanks to Mitzi Gaynor
As delightful as it is corny, this comedy-musical is based on a story by Damon Runyan, whose interest in the New York crime world led to the creation of "Guys and Dolls," another must-see musical. Mitzi Gaynor is a delight as a country girl caught up in the escapades of a couple of crooks. This is totally her film, whether she is dancing a duet with Mousketeer Sharon Baird to the folk tune "Cindy" or swinging with Richard Green and Mitzi Green to "I've Got a Feelin' You're Foolin'." However many Mitzis they put in this movie, it belongs to Gaynor, whose enduring career makes her a performing legend and a movie great. In 2020 she was still kickin' going on age 89.
