It's a Great Feeling (1949)

Film cameos can be a fun addition to a film. Add a bunch of classic cameos and it's even better. Warner Bros' It's a Great Feeling has a bunch of them - in color. The film stars Dennis Morgan and Jack Carson - as themselves. Jack is directing the film Mademoiselle Fifi and talks his buddy Dennis into starring. From then on, they try to get a small-town girl (from Goerke's Corners, WI - the Two Guys From Milwaukee jokes begin to appear) to star. . . and the fun begins:

Dennis & Gary Cooper

Ronald Reagan

Danny Kaye

Joan Crawford

Edward G. Robinson

Dennis & Jack try to talk Judy (Doris Day) into staying in Hollywood - why would she want to go back to Goerke's Corners to marry her boyfriend, Jeffrey Bushdinkle? Well...he looks a bit like...

Errol Flynn

Also in cameos are Sydney Greenstreet, Patricia Neal, Jane Wyatt, Maureen Reagan, Raoul Walks, King Vidor, Eleanor Parker, and more.

OMG, that looks like so much fun and cute! This one's on my list to watch now, heh - I like these kind of movies - and of course, wouldn't blame her for wanting to marry her boyfriend from back home, heee

Stelly: It was just on TCM, so I'm sure they'll have it again. To be honest, Erroll looks either stoned or seasick in that scene - looks caked in rouge too, but it might just be the Technicolor ;)

I can't tell you how depressed I was to miss this one. I set reminders for myself all over the place but plum forgot.

Thank you for the pics!

I had no clue of all the stars until I started watching it. TiVo picked it up as a Joan Crawford movie!
