Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Craig Butler
A very minor musical romp, Do You Love Me? is one of the later examples of Hollywood's excursions into the "sweet vs. hot" music battle. There are dozens of musicals with this theme, in which a protagonist has to battle to get the devotees of pop music to accept the supporters of classical (or vice versa). Although admirably egalitarian, it's a theme that usually holds few surprises, and that's the problem with Love -- you know where it's going long before it gets there, and there are far too few surprises along the way. The standard issue love triangle is at least a kind of rectangle in this outing, but the relationships of all concerned are none too compelling. The music, at least, is good, whether it's Mendelssohn or Harry James. The James tunes also have the benefit of Dick Haymes' smooth baritone crooning, and he sounds especially good in the title tune and "The More I See You, the More I Want You." As the ring leader of the plot, Maureen O'Hara is lovely and charming as always, which goes a long way toward making the silly script tolerable.
