By and large, it's a fun, frothy, happy movie. As someone who's a fan of musicals, I've seen remarkably few of the movie musicals from the heyday of that genre. Seeing it also made me glad I'd been to Saint Louis. I went a few years ago to visit marzapane when she lived there, and saw parts and pieces still left over from the "Louisiana Purchase Exposition".
