Paul, that is understatement, I preferred my "gang fight". No, musicals, even this one has some good music, but its all this dancing
does my head in, even though it is very clever choreography, I am left cold. Thankfully we have lots of folk that really appreciate
these films, and that is only right.

I don't think its as likable as "singin in the rain" which to me is the best musical film of all, but its an important film and quite experimental for the time, and copied no doubt by
"grease" many years later, in its use of gangs dancing and singing. I think the people who did the singing over dubs on many of the musicals including the one's mentioned were
lost hero's for making some of the song's so memorable. The late Natalie wood didn't even know her voice would be over dubbed because she thought she had done a good job,
but not good enough it would seem.

Redubbing of actors voices etc is a very strange business Paul, there was a nice programme on BBC 4 recently dedicated to musicals
and very interesting it was, on how various artistes voices were redone by Hollywood at the time.It didn't stop there though, Hammer Films had a redub policy which was something else, poor Ingrid Pitt was redubbed for "Countess Dracula", as was Raquel Welch for
"One Million Years B.C." It would seem that anyone who spoke with an accent was redone, I'm almost sure Ursula Andress was redubbed
for "She".
