Springtime In The Rockies

 

-- Synopsis: A nonsensical Fox musical!. Vicky Lane (Betty Grable) is a beautiful Broadway star who abandons her supposedly cheating partner and boyfriend Dan Christy (John Payne) for a job offer at Lake Louise in the Canadian Rockies. All manner of complications arise when Vicky meets dance instructor and former partner Victor Prince (Caesar Romero) and Miss Murphy (Carmen Miranda) and the two complicate matters romantically. Betty uses Romero to teach her cheating boyfriend (John Payne) a lesson or two in the art of two-timing, while Payne uses Rosita Murphy (Miranda) to do the same.

* Charlotte Greenwood does her hilarious high-kicking dance. Miranda does her usual singing and dancing. Betty Grable does some of her best onscreen dancing with Romero. Dean Collins and Jewel McGowen can be seen in the group dance number doing the samba and then some swing-outs with the cast.

DVD Version also features: DVD is a double feature including " Riders of Whistling Pines"
