Movie Reviews

Moon Over Miami is a Technicolor Musical Delight!
John Malanga | Pacifica, CA United States | 03/14/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Moon Over Miami ranks at the top of the list of Betty Grable musicals. This beautiful Technicolor, musical remake of Three Blind Mice stars Betty Grable, Carole Landis, Don Ameche, Robert Cummings, Charlotte Greenwood and Jack Haley. This is the story of three women who pool their resources and head to Florida to find a millionaire husband for one of them. It would be remade again as Three Little Girls In Blue (in Atlantic City) and once again as How To Marry A Millionaire (in New York). Betty Grable's dance with Hermes Pan is amazing and one of the best moments in her long career."
Arguably Betty Grable's best movie

"MOON OVER MIAMI is arguably Betty Grable's best movie musical, with a great supporting cast and delicious script making the whole movie an endless delight.

Betty Grable plays Kay Latimer, who decides to pool her resources with her aunt (Charlotte Greenwood) and sister (Carole Landis) and together they travel to Miami in hopes of snaring rich husbands. Grable soon finds herself torn between Don Ameche and Robert Cummings. All manner of romantic complications arise before the story rushes to it's inevitible happy ending.

Betty Grable is luminous in the lush Technicolor photography; Carole Landis provides good support as sister Barbara, and Charlotte Greenwood is her usual wisecracking self as Aunt Susie. Don Ameche and Robert Cummings realize that this is Grable's show and wisely don't overplay their performances.

One of Grable's best movies to be sure.

The new DVD edition from Fox's "Marquee Musicals" series presents a very nice print of the movie with fully-saturated Technicolor. Extra features include the various Betty Grable trailers, plus a bonus set of postcard-sized lobbycards."
MOST ENJOYABLE

"After coming into a small inheritance of $4500, beautiful sisters Kay and Barbara Latimer (Betty Grable and Carole Landis) decide to head down to Miami to land themselves rich men (they work at a roadside hamburger joint!) The girls take along their spirited Aunt Susie (the great Charlotte Greenwood) and she poses as their maid...............Shot in gaudy, captivating old Technicolor, MOON OVER MIAMI is a fast-paced musical comedy froth which highlighted Grable's dancing, especially in a number with with the tap-dancing Condos Brothers. Leo Robin and Ralph Rainger wrote 8 songs for the movie, none of which became standards; still, all the tunes fit the surroundings of this slick production from 1941. Of the three leading men (the other two being Don Ameche and Jack Haley) Bob Cummings was the least experienced as a screen singer; his rendition of YOU STARTED SOMETHING is adequate at best. The hilariously high-kicking Greenwood has a comedy duet with Haley doing IS THAT GOOD? (you betcha!) The great choreographer, Hermes Pan staged the sequenced in which Grable dances with the Condos Brothers, Jack Cole and company. The film affords some fleeting shots of a 1941 Miami which was almost quaint to the Miami of today plus interesting location sequences of aquatic and underwater activities in Cypress Gardens and Silver Springs. A very pleasant diversion."
Thank you Fox! Finally being released on DVD

"This movie is great fun! Betty Grable is absolutely stunning as is Carole Landis and very good suporting cast as well as great costumes, lovely sets and gorgeous technicolor make this musical a delight. I've practically worn out my tape and now at last it is being released on DVD as part of the Betty Grable collection. Now let's see more great Fox musicals of the forties released!! "Moon Over Miami" is a remake of an earlier (non musical) called "Three Blind Mice"1938 staring Loretta Young, Joel McCrea and David Niven. It is also enjoyable if you can find it."
