The Dolly SistersIn 1904, Uncle Latsie comes to New York from Hungary with two little nieces, who immediately take to cafe dancing. In 1912 they're still at it, but to pay Uncle's card debts they decide to go into vaudeville. Singer Harry Fox, whom they meet en route, schemes to get them an audition with the great Hammerstein; but their resulting success takes them far out of Harry's league. Lots of songs with a little story.My Blue HeavenRadio star Kitty Moran, long married to partner Jack, finds she's pregnant, but miscarries.

Editor's Note
MY BLUE HEAVEN: Blending musical comedy and drama, this unique film from the 1950s stars Dan Dailey and Betty Grable as Jack and Molly Moran, a showbiz couple looking to adopt after Molly suffers a miscarriage. They suffer some setbacks, not the least of which is prejudice against their occupation, but ultimately find happiness with two adopted children.

THE DOLLY SISTERS: Pinup favorite Betty Grable and June Haver star in this comic biographical look at the lives of Jenny and Rosie Dolly, a Hungarian sister act who took Europe by storm in the early 1900s. The story focuses on the romance between singer-songwriter Harry Fox and the beautiful Jenny Dolly. Includes the song "I Can't Begin to Tell You."

MOON OVER MIAMI: Don Ameche and Betty Grable star in this musical remake of the play THREE BLIND MICE. When an inheritance turns out to be worth a fraction of its initial value after taxes, Kay Latimer (Grable) convinces her sister, Barbara (Carole Landis), and her aunt, Susan (Charlotte Greenwood), to spend the money on a trip to Miami, where Kay hopes to land a millionaire for a husband. Once there, Kay's relatives pretend to be her servants and help her convince a bartender to obtain invitations for them to some upper-crust parties. Kay quickly finds herself tangled up with two men, Phil O'Neil and Jeffrey Bolton (Ameche and Robert Cummings), the former turning out to be penniless while the latter only has eyes for Barbara. Meanwhile, the hotel bartender, who despises gold diggers, discovers that Kay and company are paupers who can't even afford the hotel bill and threatens to blow the lid on the trio of damsels in distress. Grable fanned the fire of her burgeoning fame with a magnetic performance, her notoriously spectacular figure enhanced by a series of dazzling outfits. Songs from this funny and tuneful romp include "Kindergarten Conga," "Loveliness and Love," and "Is that Good?"

DOWN ARGENTINE WAY: An American socialite on vacation in Argentina falls in love with a wealthy race horse owner. Carmen Miranda's first American film appearance was in this sparkling musical. Academy Award Nominations: 3, including Best (Color) Cinematography, Best Song ("Down Argentine Way").

Professional Reviews

Laserdisc Review 8 of 10
[Down] The color transfer of Down Argentine Way is fantastic. The flesh tones are rich, the costumes are luscious, and even the outdoor stock footage is incredibly vivid...Carmen Miranda sings a couple of numbers in the film, but it couldn't have taken more than a day to shoot her set--or two days, one to put on her costume and one to film. (Argentine Way also contains worse than average negative stereotyping of Hispanic characters.) - Doug Pratt
