As I was watching this movie, I liked it a lot. Afterward, I wasn't so sure. But the more I think about it the more I like it...I believe I'll go and see it again (something I haven't done since 1977, when I was first-in-line to buy a ticket to that other "Star-something" movie).
Loved the end credits, with the massive, fully-orchestrated arrangement of Sandy Courage's theme. Several choruses, too!
