Directed by Mervyn LeRoy and starring Ann Blyth, Howard Keel, Fernando Lamas, Bert Lahr, and Marjorie Main, this Cinemascope treatment of composer Rudolf Friml's operetta tells the familiar story of a trapper's daughter who is torn between the Mountie who wants to civilize her and a dashing prospector. At first, cheerful mountie Mike Malone (Keel) is only interested in using Rose Marie (Blyth) to capture her sweetheart, renegade trapper Duval (Lamas), but eventually Mike and Rose Marie fall in love. Comic Bert Lahr sings "I'm the Mountie Who Never Gets His Man," and the original score is augmented by several compositions. Popular songs include "Rose Marie" and "Indian Love Call." A young Rita Moreno performs in a remarkable "Indian sacrifice" production number.
