Sky’s the Limit, The

Wartime Astaire danceteria with no Oval Office scenes we’re aware of. Nothing to do with Hughie Green’s mammoth ’70s jet-setting quiz, which rather wonderfully spa off into a more academically-oriented Travel Scholarship Show, “in which 12 extra-bright students compete for the chance to win £1,750 to further their studies. The student candidates, having already been grilled by computer and a team of university dons, now run the gauntlet (and there’s no kid-gloves from Hughie) of Agriculture, Chemistry, Geology, Medicine, Physics and Engineering. Then, in the next few weeks, it will be the turn of you, the viewer to do some homework: to vote for the young person whom you think will bring himself, and the nation, the most benefit from this travel scholarship. Voting coupons will appear in TVTimes for the appropriate week.” It’s nothing to do with that.

    Not a bad movie, actually. Wonderful Harold Arlen-Johnny Mercer score (including “One For My Baby”) and a wry look at the isolation of home-front Americans from the realities of WWII.
