 Billy Rose's Jumbo (1962 Film Soundtrack)
Billy Rose's Jumbo is a classic Hollywood musical with music and lyrics by Richard Rodgers and Lorenz Hart, screenplay by Sidney Sheldon and an all-star cast headed by Doris Day, Jimmy Durante, Martha Raye and Stephen Boyd.
Though "Billy Rose's 'Jumbo'" may not be top-drawer MGM it is still fine music; if only someone in Narberth or in Sony's licensing operations had cared enough to do this right.
The score (which was significantly reduced for the film) interpolates the song "This Can't Be Love" from THE BOYS FROM SYRACUSE, and adds brassy new orchestrations.

A throwback to an earlier, simpler era, Billy Rose's Jumbo is a moderately entertaining musical, the slender plot of which cannot support the elephantine proportions of its production.
The spectacle is certainly impressive; a lot of money was spent on re-creating some marvelous circus acts and settings, but they only seem to point up how skimpy and dull the screenplay is. While the musical numbers are bright and peppy, too much of the dialogue scenes are dull, and the pacing lags.
Just watched the Turner Classic Movies cable network airing of BILLY ROSE'S JUMBO during their January DORIS DAY month.
