Painting the Clouds with Sunshine is a Technicolor musical film released in 1951, directed by David Butler and starring Dennis Morgan and Virginia Mayo (whose singing voice was dubbed by Bonnie Lou Williams). The film is a musical adaptation of the 1919 play The Gold Diggers by Avery Hopwood. It is the fourth film adaptation of the play, after The Gold Diggers (1923), Gold Diggers of Broadway (1929) and Gold Diggers of 1933 (1933). The film is a jukebox musical, featuring popular songs from the 1910s to 1930s, including two songs from Gold Diggers of Broadway ("Painting the Clouds with Sunshine" and "Tiptoe Through the Tulips") and one song from Gold Diggers of 1933 ("We're in the Money").


Three smart Las Vegas theatrical girls decide to look for husbands; – Carol, who thinks a millionaire would be good, Abby, who is in love with baritone Vince Nichols, but is perturbed because he gambles, and June, who has a crush on Ted Lansing, a dancer. Ted, however, is in love with Abby.[2]




"Laborious plot, conventional climax – but good dances and leg-art."[4]
