This movie is just odd. It stars Jane Powell as a perky teenager named Dodie who is just desperate to get married. It's a good thing that this film wasn't meant to be even remotely realistic, because it isn't. An example of this is the fact that Powell was 29 at the time of the filming and looks it. Meanwhile, Dodie is portrayed as adorably and harmlessly brainless, when she is in reality something of a money-grubbing tramp. Over a space of three days, she inadvertently becomes engaged to three different men, and doesn't seem to have any qualms with the situation. Upon discovering her infidelity, the men patiently wait for her to choose her favorite among them. I won't give away whom she picks, but I will say that it's a last-minute decision for which no explanation is provided. Very confusing and very weird, with a collection of almost completely uninteresting songs. I wouldn't expressly discourage anyone from seeing this film, but I wouldn't suggest it to anyone either.
