A story so nice they did it thrice! The Gershwin musical Girl Crazy finds yet another financially strapped out-West ranch in need of youthful showbiz enthusiasm in this star-studded, '60s-tinged movie redo. Connie Francis and Harve Presnell play the young love- and songbirds eager to turn the spread into a moneymaking dude ranch. There's plenty of music making, too, with original Gershwin songs plus an eclectic mix of specialty numbers by Louis Armstrong, Liberace, Sam the Sham and the Pharaohs and, in a co-starring appearance that would be followed by two headlining movies, Herman's Hermits. A lineup like this can only happen in the movies -- and When the Boys Meet the Girls.
