|Synopsis:||This is a grade B musical with an implausible plot. Military cadets stage a raffle so one of them can go to the Mardi Gras and ask a French actress to be homecoming queen. Honestly! Is that not a stupid premise for a film? Pat Boone performs with complete lack of passion. Tommy Sands and Gary Crosby are incredibly obnoxious sidekicks and the Oscar-nominated song score (Bourbon Street Blues, Shenandoah, What Stonewall Jackson Said, Mardi Gras, Just Like The Pioneers, Bigger Than All Of Texas, That Man, Loyalty, I'll Remember Tonight) has only one gem in it (the love song I'll Remember Tonight) - Newman was nominated both for the song score and the jazzy, New Orleans type background scoring which ranges from mediocre to serviceable. The only things going for it are the pastel tones of the DeLuxe Color and the charming, natural and delightful performance of Christine Carere as the French actress. She is fresh and natural in the Leslie Caron style and is the only thing worth watching the film for these days. She made only 21 movies before retiring from film in 1966. Unless you are a Pat Boone fan (and this is far from his best), don't bother.|
