Portions of this film used in "Broadway to Hollywood" and Three Stooges
9 September 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Since several elaborate and expensive production numbers were shot, several in two-strip Technicolor, they were used in the 1934 MGM musical "Broadway to Hollywood", starring Frank Morgan, Alice Brady and Mickey Rooney. Nelson Eddy made his debut in this film.

There is a scene with a group of girls playing violins with a large violin hanging in the background. This was probably part of the scene from "The March of Time" which Bing Crosby appeared in singing "Poor Little G String". He was also in a scene dressed as an old man listening to a boy play the violin. As mentioned earlier, only the Vitaphone disc survives of Bing's appearance.

Other color musical routines were used in several shorts of Ted Healy and the Three Stooges.
