Re: “Coney Island

Coney Island is my personal favorite Betty Grable musical. It's chock full of wonderful songs from the "gay '90s" and Betty is at her best singing and dancing the night away. Rich, beautiful Technicolor brings out her peaches and cream complexion to its fullest. The costumes are luscious, the backlot sets depicting Coney Island are fun, and Betty gets terrific support from her two leading men, George Montgomery and Cesar Romero. One of the best examples of the great 1940s Fox musicals.
