Movie Reviews

Classic News on this Review
(5 out of 5 stars)

"When you come across something that has caught your eye you don't forget it easily. This classic, "Higher and Higher", caught my eye about 6 years ago, when my mother was introducing her children to a higher plain of movies. Classic Movies! Ah, just let the Words roll off your tounge. The movie will have you in stiches from beginning to end, and asking for more. Romance, comedy, and a mysterious twist at the end, that keeps comming at you minute after minute. Character acting, of course is flawless. The comradery between the actors and actresses seemed to be weaved together like a tightly nit throw blanket designed to comfort and keep you warm in any situation. So, as you rent this Comedic video remember that it will take you Higher and Higher."
Should Be on DVD!

"Higher and Higher is an enjoyable lightweight comedy/musical from 1944 and stars Michele Morgan as a scullery maid who becase their once wealthy boss is now broke the other servants hatch a plan to pass her off as his wealthy debutante daughter and get her married to a wealthy husband but she is in love with someone else, a fellow servant but he doesn't know she's in love with him and he is the main person who is making her pretend to be someone she isn't.! The movie also stars Jack Haley who played the Tin Man in The Wizard of Oz and Frank Sinatra in what I think is either his first or one of his first movies and he is playing a crooner. He is basically playing himself as his character is also named Frank Sinatra. This is a good movie and I would like to see it put on DVD!"

"Ok so it's highly unlikely that even a scullery maid could make that many stupid mistakes and sure, they sing a tune at the drop of a hat, but the atmposhere is so light and funny. True entertainment comes from classic movies. It's almost impossible to find modern humour, but you put in a movie like "Higher and Higher" and it's so light that it gives you an instant lift. I think it's witty and adorable and I highly reccomend it to old movie lovers like me! :)"
Was life really ever this simple?

"If you like corny, Frank Sinatra, no plot, crooner movies--this is for you. Not only is it Frank Sinatra's film debut...but also that of Mel Torme' and Barbara Hale aka Della Street- Frank Sinatra is razor thin and Mel doesn't look like he is old enough to drive--but Mel gets to sing briefly too and there is no denying that Mel is destined to be the Velvet Fog. This movie is pure corn, but hey....its supposed to be. :)"
