I actually enjoyed this one a lot more than I shouldve. The plot is beyond dumb, but Lahr is so goofy it just puts a smile on your face. Add perennial goofball Skelton into the mix and you get a borderline screwball comedy with great dance numbers thrown in. Powell isnt really featured as well here as in some of her other films, but I believe her acting is better here. A fun way to spend a rainy afternoon. 3.5 stars
