Springtime in the Rockies

Los Angeles: Twentieth Century Fox, 1942. Revised Final Script for the 1942 film musical, "Springtime in the Rockies," directed by Irving Cummings, based on the screenplay for the 1936 comedy "Second Honeymoon," written for the screen by Walter Bullock, Ken Englund, Jacques Thery, and Philip Wylie and starring Betty Grable, Carmen Miranda, John Payne, Cesar Romero, Edward Everett Horton, and Harry James.

Betty Grable's starring debut remains one the greatest Technicolor musicals produced by Fox in the 1940s, making grand use of the "let's move the action from the city to the country" approach, employing Harry James and his orchestra at their peak, and pulling out all the stops on the musical numbers--with Carmen Miranda's version of "Chattanooga Choo-Choo" and the debut of the classic song, "I Had the Craziest Dream" topping things off.
