The song "I've Got A Feeling You're Fooling" contains the line "It's just the well-known old Army game". The "Army game" is a variation on 3-card Monte where the object is to confuse the player in order for the dealer to win. It was named the Army game since it was often played in the Army trenches during WW1. See more »

Broadway Melody of 1936.....The year of Robert Taylor and Eleanor Powell
Broadway Melody of 1936 is definitely recommended to those who have a kick for Eleanor Powell. This musical is an excellent introduction to the Queen of Taps!!! Not only does Eleanor Powell dance with such terpsichorean display but also manages to act fairly well in all her scenes. Robert Taylor as handsome as ever delights his audience in a pleasant singing voice along with June Knight and Buddy and Vilma Ebsen.
MGM's future relied but not too severely on this film, it proved a success and Eleanor Powell became an overnight star. This musical is a must see for those who adore musicals in their original state.
