Jane Powell stars in this frothy romantic musical along with Vic Damone and Fernando Lamas. While vacationing in Paris with her father, rich Texan Jim Stauton Rogers (Wendell Corey), a cattle baron turned politician, 20-year-old Elizabeth Rogers (Powell) falls in love with handsome Andre Milan (Damone, in his film debut). She also learns to her surprise that her Gallic mother, Marie (Danielle Darrieux), is not dead, as she had been led to believe, but alive and involved with suave South American Paul Sarnac (Lamas). Among the ten musical numbers are "Wonder Why," "We Never Talk Much," and "I Can See You." The Four Freshman perform. The film was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Song.
