A marvelous Unsung "B" musical from 1934!
16 October 2000 | by (Pittsburgh, PA) – See all my reviews

A marvelous unsung "B" musical from 1934. No breathtaking dance routines, no overpaid big names----just 68 minutes of fun, music and good humor. There are some familiar faces such as Guy Kibbee, Douglas Dumbrille, Rochelle Hudson and Pat Ellis in the cast. And it's your only chance to hear Chick Chandler SING! And you'll want to hum the songs by Sammy Fain & Irving Kahal. Get the DVD of 42nd Street and you can see the production short from this feature. The story----as if there needed to be one----concerns a cub reporter, based on the 1920's cartoon strip character HAROLD TEEN, who will do anything to get a big story, including learning how to dance from Hugh Herbert---a correspondence school dance instructor. Harold's a fast learner, considering that star Hal Le Roy was a Broadway dancer at the time. The usual complications occurs: a temperamental rich girl who wants to be the star of the show and her father who decides he's going to marry a girl young enough to be his daughter. Everything turns out well in the end, of course, especially for the audience who had a darn good evening at the movies.
