      Comments about Duchess of Idaho:

      I had a very good time watching this picture. I love the MGM musicals of the 40's and 50's, with all of their big-dollar costumes, sets, and locations, and this one delivers more of the same. There's Big Band music (aboard a passenger train, no less), Chicago and Sun Valley as backdrops, charming Van Johnson's musical numbers, and ever-appealing Esther, who swims and swoons and wears beautiful clothes, yet still comes across as the sweet, pretty girl-next-door. The color looks pretty great, but there is some wobbling and warbling of the pitch, during some of the orchestra scenes. Still, I feel as though I've had a treat, getting to see another view into the Studio System era, with this picture.

          To be honest I bought this on a whim after seeing the
          Trailer and was not let down. Great "feel good" film
          from the 1940's nicely done music numbers with Esther
          doing her trademark water show at beginning of film
          Van Johnson shows off his stuff as her band leader love interest while cameos by Red Skelton,Lena horne
          and Eleanor Powell pad out this light hearted comedy.
          although not remastered color and sound are awesome!
          disc contains film outtakes and Trailer

                Even in this they manage to get her in the pool for a couple of great water shows. Beautiful costumes & photography & enjoyable story. You can never go wrong with an Esther Williams movie. Grab a bowl of popcorn, sit back & enjoy.

                    Great old movie. Esther Williams and Van Johnson were great.
