What are people saying?

  • Aaken's rating of the film On the Riviera

    A very enjoyable film showcasing Kaye's acting as well as musical talents. Good musical numbers choreographed by the great Jack Cole - who will later use the same elements in Marilyn Monroe's 'Diamonds are a girls' best friend' and Gene Kelly's 'Les Girls'. Gene Tierney is gorgeous although she doesn't find much to do - her best films belong to the 40's... Not a fan of Kaye, but he's quite entertaining in this film.
