Three Little Girls in Blue is a 1946 20th Century-Fox musical film that starred June Haver along with George Montgomery, Vivian Blaine, Celeste Holm, and Vera-Ellen. The film was a re-make of Guy Bolton's 1938 play "Three Blind Mice"[2] and 1941's movie musical Moon Over Miami.[3] Its score featured songs with music by Josef Myrow and lyrics by Mack Gordon[4] and is notable today for the first appearance of the classic "You Make Me Feel So Young", popularized by Frank Sinatra[5] in 1956.

Vera-Ellen's singing voice was dubbed by Carol Stewart.
