It’s like the ultimate film of entertainment, with memorable songs, lovely actors (and John Hodiak, a cartoon wolf), elegant dance and camera moves, sumptuous colours, and a huge amount of good-natured fun.
…A delightful bauble from the Arthur Freed musical unit… The result is a high-spirited and wily film, coasting on the charm of Garland, whose thrilling pipes, no-fools-suffered comic timing, and quasi-androgynous bearing are all put to excellent use.
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
