Red, Hot and Blue (1949)


John Farrow    


Hagar Wilde (screenplay),  John Farrow (screenplay)  


Betty HuttonVictor MatureWilliam Demarest  
Taken (as far as possible) from the Cole Porter musical comedy of the same name, Red, Hot and Blue stars Betty Hutton as an ambitious chorus girl. Hutton gets a job with a musical comedy bankrolled by gangsters, and is the wrong girl at the wrong place when one of the show's backers (William Talman) is bumped off. She is arrested for suspicion of murder, then is kidnapped by the villains to keep her from spilling the beans. The plot requires that she be rescued by hero Victor Mature, though many disgruntled audience members may have been rooting for the boisterous Hutton to be dumped in the East River. The stage version of Red Hot and Blue starred Ethel Merman, Jimmy Durante, and Bob Hope. Hutton is no Merman, but she gives her all to the brassy production numbers and the self-absorbed ballads--written not by Cole Porter, whose score was dispensed with, but by Paramount's in-house tunesmith Frank Loesser, who also plays a small role as one of the gangsters.

  1. Betty Hutton shines 5 Star Review

    Posted by on Feb 6th 2018

    Lots of fun in this musical with some great production numbers for Betty Hutton! Check out the one called "Hamlet" for something unique and full of energy. Its Betty's movie and she puts all her energy and enthusiasm into it! Enjoyed all the songs as well. I first saw her in Sept.2017 in "Annie Get Your Gun" and instantly became a die-hard Hutton fan! What a talented singer,dancer and actress. Highly recommend this !!!
