Cole Porter’s 1930 Broadway hit as filmed in 1943 by MGM, with Red Skelton and Lucille Ball taking over for Bert Lahr and Ethel Merman. Porter had his usual Hollywood bad luck, with many of his songs cut or turned into background music, but Roy Del Ruth’s direction has a sloppy, burlesque vitality and the Technicolor photography (by the great Karl Freund) is good, garish fun. With Gene Kelly, Virginia O’Brien, Donald Meek, and, in his first film, Zero Mostel; the dance numbers were directed by Charles Walters.
