Audience Reviews for Can't Help Singing

Deanna's in fine voice and looks great in Technicolor. The film itself is a trifle with zero relation to everyday life, Deanna travels all the way across country in a wagon train in frilly pastel gowns and saucer curls!, but if you like the sort of musical that is divorced from reality this is a pleasant time passer.
