Musical fluff
5 December 2000 | by (Toronto, Canada) – See all my reviews

This film is based on the real Powers Girls (among the real life graduates are Grace Kelly, Lee Remick, Jennifer Jones)and shows Anne Shirley and Carole Landis at their best. Top accolades to Benny Goodman and his orchestra and some great dancing and singing. Plot is paper thin but summarized incorrectly by Maltin. Anne Shirley is the one who sacrifices a potential windfall from a lawsuit to better the career of her sister Carole who wants to become a Powers girl. Landis is particularly luminous and believable. I was saddened to read of her suicide a few years later. I gave it a 5 out of 10.
