Mitzi Gaynor plays a charming fish-out-of-the-Hudson country bumpkin with a heart of gold, plopped into the guys-and-molls world of Damon Runyon's Bloodhounds of Broadway. The film showcases the splendid talents, often underrated, of Gaynor as actress, singer, and, most importantly, dancer--high-stepping, tapping, and even contra-dancing her way across the screen with a winsome smile.
