-- Pleasant musical comedy in which a farm girl (Judy Garland) reluctantly lets a theatrical troupe (headed by Gene Kelly) use her barn to put on a musical revue, then winds up the show's star. Directed by Charles Walters, there's not much plot but it's got plenty of music, notably Garland singing "Get Happy" and Kelly building a tap dance around a squeaky floor board and some newspaper pages, paced with intermittent comedy from the likes of Eddie Bracken, Phil Silvers and Marjorie Main. Enjoyable family fare. (A-I) (br)
