Harry Richman Goes 'Round
26 February 2015 | by See all my reviews

The Music Goes 'Round (1936) is a low-budget attempt to establish Harry Richman in movies and is one of 3 features he made. Here he's a Broadway star in a snit because the producer won't put the song "The Music Goes 'Round" in a show. He ends up somewhere on the Mississippi where he takes a job as an actor on a riverboat (heavens to Show Boat) and romances the leading lady (Rochelle Hudson). The play is the typical old melodrama expected but he sees potential in bringing the entire acting troupe to Broadway as a comedy act in his show. The song is a big hit, proving him right, and becomes a fun scene with audience participation. The acting troupe never catches on until the end, even though the New York audiences are rolling in the aisles at the ludicrous play within a show. Lots of supporting actors here, including Walter Connolly, Douglas Dumbrille, Eddie Anderson, Victor Kilian, Etienne Girardot, Dora Early, etc.
