REVIEW: The Gershwin musical Girl Crazy finds yet another financially strapped out-West ranch in need of youthful showbiz enthusiasm in this star-studded. ‘60s-tinged movie redo. Connie Francis and Harve Presnell play the young love- and songbirds eager to turn the spread into a money-making dude ranch. There’s plenty of musicmaking too, with original Gershwin songs plus an eclectic mix of specialty numbers by Louis Armstrong, Liberace, Sam The Sham and The Pharaohs and in a co-starring appearance that would be followed by two headlining movies, Herman’s Hermits.
