    music poor and lyrics dreadful. FILM Much to long for the poor storyline Could have been cut by 60 minutes but do not think that could have saved it, even Gene Kelly did not help. Also the acting of piano playing was appallingly bad from such experienced actors.
    Explain why a roving fair had motor boats attached to the trucks?
    Sorry Brad
    The worst film I have ever seen.

    Without doubt, THE worst film I have seen in my entire 66 years! What was it all about?? Everything was SO cheesey and how we were expected to believe the silly girl was actually playing the piano was an insult to the audience’s intelligence (as was the whole sorry film).It was FAR too long (in fact, 5 minutes would have been too long)and the best bit was when the film broke down! “Hooray” (I thought) now I can go home and unblock the drain but, no such luck, it was re-started and, how polite were we that nobody ran out screaming! In a word – DIABOLIQUE oh, and another, an absolute steaming pile of MERDE – 2 1/2 hours of my life wasted that I’ll never get back. Quelle domage.
