The Pirate

The Pirate ★★★★½

"niña" is a tour de force. gene goes incredibly big in this. not sure that it truly hangs together as a story but it's immensely entertaining and the dancing. the dancing! shot in gorgeous technicolor. should mention that judy garland is also wonderful in this, though it's much less a showcase for her talents than something like for me and my gal.
nicholas brothers sequence goes so hard that it's kinda insulting that that's the number that gets a reprise at the end. you can't top them, judy and gene, hard as you try
