I was fifteen or so when I saw this movie for the first time, and I was smitten with all three of the female stars, Kay Kendall, Mitzi Gaynor, and Taina Elg. Especially Kendall, who died of leukemia only a couple of years later.
Gene Kelly plays a man who's been touring Europe with dancers he calls "Les Girls." He disbands the group, and the women go on with their lives. Kendall writes a memoir about their days on the road, and that's when the trouble begins.
Elg disagrees with several points in the memoir, so much so that the matter has to be settled in court. We get three versions of what happened: Kendall's, Elg's, and Kelly's. They aren't the same, of course, but the court has to make a decision. Meanwhile things are going on outside of court, as well. When it's all over, nobody, not even the audience, can be sure of what the truth of the matter is, even though things are supposedly settled.
There's singing, dancing, and plenty of smiles throughout. I suppose the title is unPC now, and maybe the title, taken by itself, might lead people to expect an entirely different kind of movie. Too bad, because this one is really entertaining, and I'm still smitten with Kay Kendall, Mitzi Gaynor, and Tania Elg.
