A Date with Judy is loaded with youthful zest, making for gay, light entertainment, based on the familiar air characters created by Aleen Leslie.

Jane Powell registers appealingly with vocals on five numbers and for her comedy antics as wheelhorse of plot motivation. ‘It’s a Most Unusual Day’, by Jimmy McHugh and Harold Adamson, is opening number and also is reprised by Powell for finale. Carmen Miranda gives her customary treatment to ‘Cooking with Glass’ and ‘Quanto la Gusto’, clicking strongly.

Plot concerns teenage love affair between Powell and Scotty Beckett which goes sour when the gal gets a crush on an older man, Robert Stack. It takes on another facet when Powell suspects her father, Wallace Beery, of a romance with Miranda, and the youngsters join forces to balk such a folly.

Beery does an ace job, and with little of his customary mugging, as the father who’s taking rhumba lessons so he can surprise his wife, Selena Royle. Elizabeth Taylor, rival for Stack’s affections, makes a talented appearance.
