I love them both. "Good News" is a lot of fun - there are some great dance numbers in it.
Like Irene Dunne done.

Ah...it depends, for me, on whether or not the list is DORIS DAY ONLY or ALL MUSICALS.
For Doris Day Only, my tops would be: 1. Love Me or Leave Me
2. The Pajama Game
3. Jumbo/On Moonlight Bay (tie)
4. My Dream is Yours
5. Calamity Jane/ Romance (tie)
FOR ALL TIME, MY TOPS WOULD BE:
1. Love Me or Leave me/ Calamity Jane
2. Meet Me in St. Louis
3. High Society
4. Mary Poppins
5. West Side Story
Unfortunately, I personally never liked "Singing in the Rain" and was not a fan of Gene Kelly singing. I agree with Great Britain that the greatest movie musical ever made was "Calamity Jane".
