I share your admiration for this supremely witty 1949 comedy. Every line of dialogue in the film is great. The problem with musicalizing a film this good is that 40 to 50 minutes of spoken text would have to be cut to allow room for the songs. It would be tough (probably impossible) for any lyricist to match Mankiewicz's sparkling dialogue.
