It’s A Great Feeling

BB.5

(out of 5)


‘s cheerful singing is all you need to get through this semi-musical.   and  play fictional versions of themselves, two bickering movie stars who are trying to get their latest film project off the ground except for one major hitch: no actress will work with Carson because he’s such a womanizer and a ham. Discovering a young waitress in the studio cafeteria (Day, in only her third movie), they doll her up and try to convince the studio to hire her. It’s featherweight nonsense, and it’s finale might seem just a bit too quaint for today’s audiences, but it does have some nice Sammy Cahn-Jule Styne songs, the best of them being ‘At The Cafe Rendezvous’ (which Day sings dressed up as a French movie star). A host of Warner Bros. stars and directors, from Errol Flynn to  make cameo appearances, the best being  doing a wickedly funny impersonation of her dramatic self.
