By the Light of the Silvery Moon (1953)



Reviews and Comments

On Moonlight Bay was so successful, a sequel was made that reunited the bulk of the cast. It's not quite as funny this time around, and the songs aren't quite as fresh, nor is the interaction between the characters quite so realistic. At the same time, it recaptures the carefree atmosphere of the original quite well. As far as featherweight fifties musicals go, it's a good one -- it suffers only by comparison with the first movie.
