Storyline

In 1922, novice composer Kenneth Harvey arrives in New York from Kansas, hoping to publish his concerto; he meets speakeasy owner Danny O'Mara, who hopes to put on a broadway show. Ken's affairs take a turn for the better when he falls for singer Bonnie Watson. But while he labors on orchestration, O'Mara is surreptitiously adapting his tunes to the Greenwich Village Gaieties. Written by Rod Crawford <puffinus@u.washington.edu>

Trivia

The Revuers (Betty Comden, Adolph Green, Judy Holliday and Alvin Hammer) received billing (as a group), but their one musical number, "The Baroness Bazooka," was cut from the release print. Their remaining roles are little better than extras. See more »

Goofs

The story takes place in the 1920s, but all of the women's hairstyles, makeup and costumes, as well as all of the musical arrangements are strictly 1944. See more »

For Fans of Technicolor Fox Musicals
11 July 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It amazes me that other postings about films are so critical of movies intended to be entertaining fluff, for being fluff.

And trite? What movie today isn't a rehash of something already done over and over again?

Musicals of the time weren't intended to be "South Pacific" or "Oklahoma". The plots were devised to be excuses to have music or dance performances or comedy bits. You probably noticed that the plots are mostly "backstage" stories and the characters portrayed are singers or dancers.

Technicolor is always pleasing to the eye, and so are the performances of Vivian Blaine and Carmen Miranda in this film.

So just sit back and enjoy.
