Two Girls on Broadway (1940)

** (out of 4)

MGM musical about two sisters (Lana Turner, Joan Blondell) from Nebraska who go to NYC with their friend (George Murphy) only to both fall in love with him while trying to get their break. There's really nothing too bad about this film but at the same time there's nothing too good either. Blondell certainly steals the show as the older sister who's willing to do anything to make her younger sister happy. Turner and Murphy work nice together and have a couple great dance sequences. However, if you've seen one film about girls trying to make it on Broadway then you've seen them all.
