Surprise, I liked it!
Verified purchase
I purchased the video for one reason--to see one of Steve Cochran's early appearances in film.I planned to ff thru most of the scenes, but what a treat--I really liked it. I had forgotten what a great physical comic timing Danny Kaye had. Steve was a big surprise too--usually the bad guy, tough cop or misfit, he was really funny in the role of the boxer who kept being in the wrong place at the wrong time. Virginia Mayo was lovely as always--Vera Ellen a dynamo dancer, Danny Kaye at his best and Steve going with the flow. All in all, a funny movie with beautiful people, sadly, all no longer with us.

This was almost a 100% remake of Harold Lloyd's The Milky Way years earlier. Danny Kaye, as usual, made it even funnier as a most untough lad becoming of supposed champion caliber in the boxing ring due to fights fixed in his favor, It's well worth watching for laughs.

Brings back many memories of Danny Kaye. A good storyline filled with jokes, antics and songs from Mr. Kaye. The transition from flunkee salesmnan to prize fighter to partner in his starting company is a great ending. Of course the supporting actors.actresses help complete the movie

I'm a Danny Kaye fan. I love fun, wholesome entertainment. This show was well worth the purchase. I haven't seen any shows with Danny Kaye that were not entertaining and fun.

Awesome picture for the age of the movie.
Verified purchase
Got the movie today and watched it. Picture was clear and sharp with only showing some age due to use which was to be expected. Very pleased and will buy from the seller again when I need another movie. Wonderful quality and beautifully stored.

I'm a big Vera-Ellen fan and this was the only movie she made that I hadn't seen so for me it was a must see. I was happy with the quality of the VHS tape, new and in good condition. If you like any of the players in this movie you will enjoy watching it. Now if it will just come out on DVD.
