Discovery by Flo Ziegfeld changes a girl's life but not necessarily for the better, as three beautiful women find out when they join the spectacle on Broadway: Susan, the singer who must leave behind her ageing vaudevillian father; vulnerable Sheila, the working girl pursued both by a millionaire and by her loyal boyfriend from Flatbush; and the mysterious European beauty Sandra, whose concert violinist husband cannot endure the thought of their escaping from poverty by promenading her glamor in skimpy costumes.

An interesting film for Judy Garland because she is not the "star." She's very young in this one and her seeming good health is glorious to see. Notice all the costumes! They were all designed by Adrian. Adrian was MGM's most famous costume designer, but he never won an Academy Award! ( I don't believe they had Academy Awards for Costume Design until after his death). He also designed all the costumes for The Wizard of Oz and countless other MGM films. This is a great film if you are looking for a costume spectacle
it's overwhelming when the Ziegfeld girls begin their performance,
displaying Adrian's costumes that are so spectacular that they are almost unbelievable! A new book I have on Adrian says that these costumes could not be created today because the work force he had supporting his efforts (people who sewed on beads, sequins, etc.) no longer exists. Judy does a vaudeville act with her "father" in the film that is one of the cutest things you will ever see on film. Enjoy!
