The 1951 MGM film of the great stage musical, based on the 1926 novel by Edna Ferber, is a charming, beautiful entertainment with an endearing cast, including Kathryn Grayson as Magnolia, Howard Keel as the gambler, Gaylord Ravenal, and Ava Gardner, nominated for an Academy Award, as the tragic Julie Laverne.
