Despite the rude deletion of over half the score and the less than ecstatic renditions of the remaining songs, a pleasantly witty adaptation of the Kurt Weill/ SJ Perelman/Ogden Nash musical. The gaps are only patchily filled by zany comic business presumably supplied by Frank Tashlin as co-screenwriter; but Robert Walker, excellent as the timid store clerk in love with a statue of Venus which comes alive as the predatory Gardner (dubbed in the songs by Eileen Wilson) is backed by a sterling cast.
