Movies Best Things In Life Are Free, The (1956, Gordon MacRae, Dan Dailey) Published 8 months ago on October 4, 2018 Michael Curtiz’s lavish musical tribute to Tin Pan Alley songwriting trio Buddy De Sylva, Lew Brown and Roy Henderson – played respectively by Gordon MacRae, Dan Dailey and Ernest Borgnine – is packed with no less than 20 of their catchy tunes. A fairly straight-forward biography is enlivened by a smattering of romance and an excellent ensemble performance. Sheree North reveals herself to be a mean songstress and dancer and there is good support from Murvyn Vye as a gangster who wants to get in on the trio’s financial success and Tony Galento as another hoodlum sent to protect the boys from the Mob. According to Variety , the film, ‘easily rates as one of the year’s best musicals. It’s a sparkling string of hits that’s presented here with all the nostalgic attention they deserve. Performances are top calibre… it all adds up to a bundle of good entertainment.’ production details USA | 104 minutes | 1956 Director: Michael Curtiz Script: Phoebe Ephron, William Bowers, John O’Hara, cast Gordon MacRae as B.G. ‘Buddy’ De Sylva Dan Dailey as Ray Henderson Ernest Borgnine as Lew Brown Sheree North as Kitty Kane Tommy Noonan as Carl Frisbee Larri Thomas as Dancer Dan DaileyErnest BorgnineGordon MacRaeJohn O'HaraLarri ThomasMichael CurtizMusicPhoebe EphronSheree NorthTommy NoonanWilliam Bowers Advertisement advertisement and this just in TV15 hours ago Cutting It (BBC-1 2002-2005, Amanda Holden, Sarah Parish) Comedy drama series.
