1947 | Winner: Best Music, Original Song
1947 | Nominee: Best Music, Scoring of a Musical Picture
Excellent musical numbers, so-so script, but you wont notice. Judy is effortless as usual, and Bolger shines and reveals why the Scarecrow in Oz was so light on his feet : ). Beautiful technicolor here too. MGM really was the musical king in the 40s
the many strong s&d numbers are connected by very little, but they don't need to be. Roy Bolger is above&beyond stellar. Wish Judy had danced more, but her voice is a pleasure.
The plot falters here and there but the bright Technicolor, memorable songs, and cheerful performances make up for it in the long run.
