Friday Funnies - Happy Go Lovely (1951)

David Niven is as suave as ever.

Cesar Romero is thankfully nowhere near as over the top as the Joker.

Vera-Ellen has incredible legs.

It's a film about backstage manuverings and a play that's about to run out of money.

It's also a film about mistaken identity.

It also (for some reason) takes place in Scotland.

For a musical comedy it really has very few musical numbers.

The worst (and really the best) that can be said about it is that it's charming.

Here's a preview:
