The title to this film was used for the ill-fated WWII Air Force B-24D bomber the "Lady Be Good", which disappeared over the Libyan desert on April 5, 1943 after overflying their air base in a sandstorm. The wreckage of the crash was found 15 years later in 1958 at which point it was discovered that the crew had parachuted out of the plane and had attempted to walk across the desert to safety. The remains of Lady Be Good's crew were found two years later in 1960. See more »

I found Lady Be Good to be a refreshing, surprisingly intelligent and upbeat musical with great songs and dances. The story is about a married song writing team who divorces. The story starts with Ann Southern explaining the story and follows on from there. The script is incredibly witty, and there is some great physical comedy. Some of the of the best music of all time written for this movie, including "Lady Be Good" which always gets in my head and the more famous "The Last time I saw Paris". The Gershwin's are incredible. So a combination of a witty script, great acting, great music and great dancing makes this a wonderful musical - a stand out from the rest! A truly lighthearted and entertaining musical.
