Gangsters take over a record company.
7 January 2005 | by (California) – See all my reviews

I just saw Manhattan Merry Go Round and thought it was a pretty good film. I am writing this because I did not like some of a previous viewer's extremely negative comments. It may not have been the best musical, but some of the songs were nice and the storyline interesting. I thought Leo Carrillo was humorous as the head gangster, who was "a man of few words". Phil Regan and Kay Thompson were good and so were the rest. I was even surprised to see Joe Di Maggio in his role. Ann Dvorak did very well as "Jerry's love interest" and I thought Tamara Geva was good as Madame Charlie. I had not seen her before, and thought she was similar to Tallulah Bankhead with some of her gestures. James Gleason and Moroni Olsen were good, too. In short, there are many WORSE films out there today, which is why I usually watch older ones, not of my time.
