No, this "Bad Education" is a 2019 movie that HBO acquired starring Hugh Jackman and Allison Janney based on an actual criminal case in which some public school officials embezzled millions of dollars.
The song Thanks A Lot but No Thanks is from It’s Always Fair Weather where Dolores Gray plays a TV star. The film was supposed to be sort of a follow up to On The Town with the sailors meeting years later. Unfortunately they couldn‘t get the same cast together and had to be satisfied with Kelly, Dan Dailey and Michael Kidd. Fair Weather was not too successful and came at a time when musicals were not such a popular genre. However, that aside, it is an entertaining film with lots of good numbers Including Gray’s.Indeed. But, it's not in this film.
I Agree 100% ! All I got was Tex Avery Vol.1 this year. My next for sure purchase will be Tex Avery Vol.2 and The Flintstones Complete Series. So many famous popular Classics of the 1930's to 1950's that are Not getting released ! I would like to know WHY ?
Yes. Sung in IT'S ALWAYS FAIR WEATHER. She sang wonderfully in KISMET too." Thanks A Lot ,But No Thanks"........is a great song sung by Dolores Gray
While Jo Ann does an admirable job singing "A Perfect Love," it's very poorly placed in the movie as June herself has just finished singing (in flashback) "Young Man with a Horn" in her own voice, and then when the dubbed number happens so soon afterwards, it's jarring. Even someone who doesn't know much about movie ghosting could tell something was badly off.Interesting footnote, June Allyson, who sang on Broadway and usually did her own singing in movies, is dubbed by Jo Ann Greer in one of her songs in this semi-musical ('A Perfect Love'). Jo sang for Esther Williams in JUPITER'S DARLING (a guilty pleasure I'd love to have on blu ray) and for Rita Hayworth in PAL JOEY.
I wish Warners would consider releasing the Cinemascope remake of THE BARRETTS OF WIMPOLE STREET with Jennifer Jones. No authorised home video release of this as yet as far as I know. Sidney Franklin considered it superior to his earlier version with Norma Shearer.
