I loved this movie and wish I could find a VHS of it. A light-hearted singing bouquet. Dennis Morgan had a beautiful, lilting, Irish tenor that sent his joy to all of us fortunate enough to hear it. He always appeared to love life and I hope he had a good one. His bio shows him to be a good husband and father and I wish his family all the best. No scandal and the same wife for all of his life. Couldn't ask for better than that. I do have the 78s of The Desert Song. I wish I could see this oldie too.

I watched, and recorded, this film on Turner Classic Movies last night. They evidently own it. They show it about every two-three years.
Probably the best musical movie ever made.
Story, cast, ability of the cast, Americana, camera work, sound work, color, are all beyond superb.
It is a shame that all of the folks can't get to see this. All immigrants to this country should see it. The Olcott's were all recent immigrants.
Do you know something we don't?
