A Journey to the Stars with Alice Faye
And the second time this song has sad overtones when Alice comes to know Phil has a childhood sweet-heart and its executed in extravagant spectacularly beautiful style that Busby Berkeley is renowned for.This second version evokes a feel of nostalgia and remembrance,its like the music awaking your sleeping memories of times gone by.
"The Gang's All here" is especially remembered and cherished for Carmen Miranda,her "The Lady in the Tutti-Frutti Hat" number is really great with so many over-sized Bananas carried around by young girls culminating into a huge Banana hat for Carmen.
Its a lovely musical which came in the times of Second World War.It shows how girls waited for their soldiers to return.How war-bonds were sold to raise money for their benefit.Its uplifting in spirit and well acted,I watched this after watching few Bond Movies and there they said dialogs without meaning it,while here it seems like if audience is a bystander watching everything happening before their eyes,not one false note.Alice Faye acts so well in the movie it feels like she is living the part.Not like some movies where you know they are acting.
