For the number "Your Broadway and Mine", the set is decorated with the names of Broadway stars from the 1910s and 1920s. When Alice (played by Sophie Tucker) starts talking about former times, Tucker's name can be seen on at least all of the neon billboards before the number's end. See more »
In the final number "Your Broadway and My Broadway" there's a neon sign on the right with the writing "Broadway Melody of 1937" - the working title of this movie. See more »

This is like the other "Broadway Melody" films in that it is fun, likable and lightweight with a story that mixes music, comedy and romance. Included in the comedy are two odd-ball characters who have single-scene routines, one of them (the man who analyzes sneezes) a repeat from the BM of 1936 film.
Everyone's character is nice in this movie except for Binnie Barnes' role of "Caroline Whipple." Eleanor Powell and George Murphy sing and dance and a young Judy Garland sings - just what we'd all except. I didn't find any of the songs in here that good but they weren't awful, either.
This may be a musical but the music wasn't the appeal for me: it was the nice characters in the film that made you feel good just watching them.
