Memorable Quotes and Dialog:

"Who's to eat who'"
  - King Louis XV of France (RED SKELTON) after being served roast pig for dinner

Product Description:

Two talented redheads cavort through the court of King Louis XV in one of MGM's lightest and frothiest musical concoctions. Adapted from a Cole Porter Broadway show but missing most of its best songs, it's still a treat to see Tommy Dorsey and His Orchestra in powdered wigs.

Plot Synopsis:

This adaptation of Cole Porter's Broadway musical features Red Skelton, Lucille Ball and Gene Kelly.
After winning a Derby, nightclub coat-check boy Louis Blore mistakenly drinks a 'Mickey' that sends him into a fantastic dream. Louis imagines himself as King Louis XV of France, and the cabaret singer he adores as his Madame Du Barry.


Production Notes:

  • Feature film debut for comic Zero Mostel who previously worked on the stage.
  • The Broadway musical on which this film is based starred Bert Lahr and Ethel Merman, with Ronald Graham and Betty Grable.
  • Songs include: "Du Barry Was a Lady," "Friendship," "If You Don't Love an Esquire Girl," "Madame, I Came Here for Love," "Fight for the Freedom of France," "Katie Went to Haiti," "Salome Was the Grandma of Them All" and "Do I Love You'"
  • Color by Technicolor.
  • Additional credits: Nancy Hamilton (adaptation); Wilkie Mahoney (additional dialogue); Alex Stordahl & Sy Oliver (orchestrations)
