Musical fans, we're calling you, oo-oo-oo, oo-oo-oo! Howard Keel and Ann Blyth (who would later team for Kismet) play stalwart Mountie and backwoods hellion in this grand color and CinemaScope version of the beloved operetta. Filmed largely on location in the Canadian Rockies, Rose Marie combines a charming tale of a tomboy becoming a lady with two love triangles, a murder mystery, settler-vs.-Indian strife and glorious music, including four of the original stage production's tunes: Rose Marie, The Indian Love Call, The Mounties and in a knockout production number staged by Busby Berkeley, Totem Tom Tom. Another highlight: Bert Lahr's comic turn warbling The Mountie Who Never Got His Man.
