Did You Know?


Don Ameche, who had previously co-starred with Alice Faye in no less than six movies (including In Old Chicago (1937), Alexander's Ragtime Band (1938), and That Night in Rio (1941)), was supposed to co-star with her in this movie as well. But Ameche was too busy filming Heaven Can Wait (1943) with Ernst Lubitsch, so James Ellison was cast as a replacement. In the movie, Alice Faye tells Ellison, "Stop acting like Don Ameche!" - an "inside joke," since audiences watching the film would know that Ellison's role was the "Don Ameche role." See more »

Pure '40s - Benny and Carmen
2 April 2001 | by (Washington, DC) – See all my reviews

"The Gang's All Here" is just pure entertainment in the old-school musical style (before Oklahoma!). There's essentially no plot, and what story there is, is full of plot-holes. It's propaganda dressed up in a musical. Don't get negative about this; music and dancing predominate and, of course, the cause is good. Made during WWII it almost subliminally reinforces home front practices during wartime, such as buying war bonds, and staying true to your man in uniform. A lot of this is probably lost to most viewers fifty years later. But think about it, and remember that when this movie was made, the Allied victory was not a sure thing.

And what about the music and dancing? Carmen Miranda in her tutti-frutti hat. Benny Goodman's swing band. Alice Faye. Busby Berkeley. If these people mean any thing to you, they are here in fine form.
