5.0 out of 5 stars MOST ENJOYABLE Nov. 20 2001
Format:VHS Tape
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.

Betty Grable, the queen of Technicolor musicals, has not had ANY of her Technicolor musicals released on DVD...all Fox can think of is this Simpsons and X-Files crap. Anyway, this musical, set in a Miami LONG before the MTV kids and their crap hit town, also stars future Cocoon star Don Ameche has some extremely gorgeous Technicolor cinematography. This is one musical you will NOT want to miss!

5.0 out of 5 stars Betty Grable is the Greatest! June 10 1999
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
Moon Over Miami is among the greatest of all musicals, although bone-heads like Leonard Maltin seems to think only MGM could make a musical. Everything from the great gowns, the dance numbers, the cast make this a must-have for any movie collector. From the opening song and dance number at Texas Tommy's Drive-In, where Betty and Carole Landis wiggle and jiggle to the great Congo to a Nursery Rhyme number with Betty ravishing in a white gown and silver slippers, you're carried along through this snappy, World War II era fantasy where the only thing gorgeous gals want to do is find Mr. Millionaire (but then times haven't changed that much!)Betty is especially vibrant in a gray suit, trimmed in fur for the start of her Miami stay, and in her final gown--spattered with flowers in multi-hued colors. This is the perfect movie for anyone wondering why Betty Grable was among the Top Ten Box Office Stars for l0 straight years. She's vibrant, warm, gorgeous--everybody's female buddy and best friend. The ravishing color photography is hallucinatory: jades and cobalts and crimson hues like you've never seen, set against a dream-like Miami backdrop.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent,romantic comedy Feb. 16 1999
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
I love the movie with Betty Grable and Don Ameche in it. Both of them have a wonderful chemistry together on the screen and I wouldn't be at all surprised if they had it off the screen as well.I love how Betty is dancing with the millionaire and all of a sudden sees Don Ameche with another woman and starts asking her fiance questions and decides to get married tonight.I also love the scene where Don tells Betty that she isn't in love with the millionaire but with him and Betty gets angry because she says he doesn't even love her but he says he might and she storms out of there with Don Ameche following her convincing her he loves her and when she doesn't believe him he says he is going to carry her out of there and then that's when Betty Grable's underhanded scheme is unraveled.However, it has a happy ending to it because Betty got to marry the man she loves who is Don Ameche and her sister got to marry the man she loves the millionaire.

This has someof the most colrful and beautiful costumes that I've ever seen in film. Betty Grable and Bob Cummings are famulous in it, and make a great pair. It is a charming film, very bright andhappy, well worth seeing.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun, romantic comedy Dec 21 1998
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
This movie is funny and romantic. The plot is not entirely predictable, and is thoroughly entertaining. Betty Grable portrays a relatable woman who desires to marry a rich man. Although she finds and pursues one, she is pursued by his poor best friend. Although she wants to love the rich man, she finds herself falling in love with his friend. Meanwhile, her sister, who completely disapproves of attempting to find a rich man, finds herself being pursued by one. The songs are upbeat and delightful. Although musicals are old-fashioned, this one skips the generations and can be enjoyed by any age.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Fun, Nostalgic Trip Back in Time! April 22 2000
Format:VHS Tape
Betty Grable lights up Miami and makes you wish you were there with her! This movie gives you a look at an elegant Florida as it was pre-amusement parks. You also get to enjoy the beautiful gowns, the dancing and the furniture of the era. Yes, I said the furniture. And, last, but not least, it has a fun, romantic and spirit-lifting story. It is a movie for those times when you just want to have fun--no complicated plots, no violence--just fun!

4.0 out of 5 stars out of this world musical April 22 2001
Format:VHS Tape
I had never seen a musical before I viewed this movie. I was sure they were boring and not "age appropriate" I am in my early twenties, But I fell in love with this movie! It has a great cast Betty Grable and Don Ameche have such chemistry. Plain and simple this movie is endearing and fun to watch. I find myself humming the songs from the movie all the time. I am so glad I gave it a chance it really is a wonderful movie for all ages.

4.0 out of 5 stars Moon over Miami
I like both Betty Grable and Don Ameche, to-gether there lots of clean entertainment.
I'M 76 years old, that probably tells it all. This was my generation of actors.

Not much of a movie, really but it's a fine example of the last great days before television when Hollywood could offer the world a nice package of fun and color. Read more
