April Love (1957)



Reviews and Comments

This lighthearted 20th Century Fox musical must have looked great on paper. It paired crooner and teen idol Pat Boone with that queen of movie musicals, Shirley Jones. A better script would have helped, but it's fairly enjoyable as it is. A city boy (Boone) gets into trouble and, at the request of a court judge, moves to the country to help out at his uncle's. There, he is taught to handle horses and run sulky races -- except his interests lie more with fast cars. See a widescreen version of this one; the pan-n-scan version butchers almost every scene.
