Storyline

Al Howard may be a star on Broadway, but he is no longer welcomed by any producer. It seems that he just trots off to Mexico any time he wants causing shows to close and producers to lose money. When his sister Molly can no longer find Al work, she teams him up with talented Dorothy for a club date in Chicago. Flush with another success, Al wants to open his own club on Broadway, so he borrows money from a gangster to open the show. Al has Dorothy, who he ignores, the gangsters dough and the gangster's sweetie Luana. All he has to do is keep them all happy, but Luana wants Al. Written by Tony Fontana <tony.fontana@spacebbs.com>

Go Into Your Dance is a significant film because it is the only one to star married couple Al Jolson and Ruby Keeler. The two have an odd relationship on the screen which seems to reflect their coupling off-screen. Who would have ever thought that a pompous jazz singer would marry an innocent chorus girl? Though their relationship was wrought with problems and eventually led to divorce, it is one of the big romances of early Hollywood.

Jolson stars as Al Howard, a popular Broadway star who has neglected to show up to his own premieres one too many times; he's sunk. His concerned sister (Glenda Farrell) does all she can to knock some sense into him and revive his career. Teaming him with a chorus dancer (Keeler) seems to do the trick, but he fails to recognize how much his new partner loves him.

Jolson is wonderful as always here. His personality is a bit flamboyant, but he is still able to maintain his status as a romantic lead. His presence seems to have helped Keeler as well; this is her best performance to date. There are times when you might catch yourself believing everything she says and getting wrapped up in her parts of the story. In previous films, it seems all she had to do was be cute and dance, but here, acting kicks in. Farrell is a favorite of mine, a sassy actress with a heart of gold. She peps up every film she's in, and she's beautiful to boot. Also making appearances is Patsy Kelly in a small comic role and Helen Morgan as the girlfriend of a gangster with eyes for Al.

The music is pretty good for such a forgotten film. Keeler is introduced in a simple chorus number called "A Good Old Fashioned Cocktail" that utilizes props and costume changes. Jolson gets to sing about his Mammy, but his standout song is "A Quarter to Nine," an upbeat, catchy song about anticipating a date. Morgan is outstanding singing an understated but powerful "The Little Things You Used to Do." "Latin From Manhattan" is another catchy, carefree song that should be better known. Last, we have the title song, "Go Into Your Dance" which is much more forgettable than the others.
