My Sister Eileen (1955) 06/26/18

Twilight Time

Lively stars, good music and Bob Fosse-grade dancing favor Columbia’s forgotten-yet-rediscovered original musical remake, which turns the adventures of two sisters in Manhattan into an all-romantic gambol. Janet Leigh and Jack Lemmon are young and fresh, but MGM alumnus Betty Garrett steals the show. Director Richard Quine uses good sense on the musical numbers by Jule Styne and Leo Robin; also starring Tommy Rall, Dick York, Kurt Kaznar and Lucy Marlow. On Blu-ray from Twilight Time.
