...and all the 'dream sequences' were hit-and-miss (well, Jenny RULES...) ...the 'flashback' stuff was also a bit sad, but explains the riddle of Liza. ...at the end of the day, it's a typical mid-40's film that finds itself mainly a 'romantic drama' (is there a catchy phrase for that? rom-drom?) with a dash of 'mild screwball'. And, it DOES have its entertaining moments. Of course, the Jenny scene is worth the price of admission a few times over...
...but the overall draw is the 'romantic tension' between Ginger and Ray Miland, who had just done The Major and the Minor with Ginger a few years prior, which proved to be a pleasing match... it works pretty well here again, and leads to a logical conclusion.
...now, back to the Jenny scene... I forgot Ginger gives a little 'Ha-Ha' at the end of a line when she was in the cage... um... yeah... that was a pretty trippy sequence there, with the dancing rabbits and egg people... um... yeah... but Ginger is just SO cool here... still one of my all time fave GingerScenes...
As to the 'current state' of this film, there has never been, to my knowledge, any commercial copy of this one available... thus, the copies floating around are from television airings (I have two copies, the better of the two from AMC...) It's a shame HD wasn't around in AMC's heyday, as the copy is quite 'blurry' and color is ...eh... ...in short, we REALLY need a restored copy of this, Paramount or folks who bought Paramount... pleeeze?
Well, that's it... past my bedtime, y'all!
Stay tuned for what's on the docket for tomorrow night... check on FB!!!
