Hailed by Andrew Sarris as a musical Rashomon, Cukor’s glorious CinemaScope bauble stars Gene Kelly as a dance troupe impresario who gives one of three differing accounts when one of his dancers accuses another of libeling her in a tell-all memoir. It was Kelly’s first and only collaboration with Cukor, but the scene-stealer is Kay Kendall, lively and quietly heartbreaking in one of her final performances. (She passed away young two years later.) Featuring songs by Cole Porter.
