In this comedy sequel to Wonderful Town (a popular Broadway musical), Kim, a museum worker from Providence, Rhode Island, inherits half ownership of a Las Vegas hotel when her father dies. She and her Aunt Clara go there to learn more about it. Unfortunately, just before they arrive, the other owner, Ether Ferguson, gambles the hotel away. When Kim and Clara arrive, Kim is led to believe that the hotel she co-owns is the Flamingo Hotel which is really owned by Victor Monte. Victor finds the naive lass charming and so allows the delusion to persist. Eventually they fall in love. Songs include: "An Occasional Man," "Take a Chance," "We're Alone," "The Girl Rush," "Champagne," "Birmingham," "Out of Doors," "Choose Your Partner," and "My Hillbilly Heart."

    Rosalind Russell in a musical!

    Posted by Philip Shultz on Jan 30th 2023

    Cashing in on her success on Broadway in "Wonderful Town", it was decided that Ms. Russell was a good enough singer and dancer to star in a Hollywood musical. While this film did not receive good reviews when it opened, it's actually much fun, with a plot that will keep you interested, a tuneful score by Martin and Blane, (who wrote the score for "Meet Me In St.Louis")and good supporting performances by Fernando Lamas, Eddie Albert, Gloria DeHaven, and Marion Lorne, all surrounding Ms. Russell, who give an indication in this film of what she would later accomplish when she played the role of "Mama Rose", in the film version of "Gypsy". This film is very entertaining, and the print is good.
