Good 1930s Musical
21 April 2010 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Not to be confused with "Top Hat", "High Hat" is a light-hearted 1930s musical about a pretentious female singer who wants a job at a radio station. She, however, ruins her first show with her rather cloyingly "high class" singing style. Meanwhile, she falls in love with the son of the station owner, and problems ensue when another woman who wants a job at the station hires some people to beat him up! The whole thing ends happily with a singer-songwriter friend of the singer convinces her to sing in a more accessible way. As such, the movie ends with several catchy 1930s song performances of various styles from jazz to crooner to novelty featuring a wide range of great talent. Though by no means a great movie, it's not bad for a B-musical and it's short running time, quick pacing help it a lot.
