Date with Judy (1948).
A Date with Judy(1948). Cast: Wallace Beery, Jane Powell, and Elizabeth Taylor. Directed by Richard Thorpe, the movie was based on a radio series of the same name. The film was to showcase the former child star Elizabeth Taylor, age 16 at the time. Taylor was given the full MGM glamor treatment, including specially designed gowns. Robert Stack is in a prominent supporting role. The film features the singing voice of Jane Powell, and is also a showcase for the musical performances of Carmen Miranda and Xavier Cugat. I thought the music and the acting were wonderful. Jane Powell and Elizabeth Taylor both were gorgeous. I wonder if this is what it was like going to High School in the 40s?
