Re-issued in the early 1950's by Astor pictures, the film was retitled simply "Sensations" and in tiny letters on the title card was the disclaimer "Formerly titled Sensations of 1945". The old nitrate prints were used and the section of the main title that was changed was inserted thereby keeping the cost of the reissue to a minimum. See more »
A routine theater projector is used to project a Cab Calloway short subject on a New York City billboard several blocks away. Because of the focus and intensity of light required, this would be an impossibility anywhere, let alone in a well-lit area like Times Square. See more »
Ginny (Eleanor Powell) takes over an agency and books various acts to impress Gus (Eugene Palette) and Junior (Dennis O'Keefe). She also helps open a club for Dan (C Aubrey Smith). Ginny and Junior spar with each other but will they get together in the end? There can only be one outcome!
The story is an excuse to string together various entertainer routines, the worst being WC "potato nose" Fields who performs a dreadful skit and a very bland song called "Penny Arcade". However, this is offset by great dance routines (2 with Eleanor Powell), some good circus performers with an impressive tightrope walker Olaf (Hubert Castle) and a very good middle "black" section with Cab Calloway and 2 piano players which is the standout part of the film. Sophie Tucker appears for 2 numbers at the end, so this will please those of you who like those unfunny songs that are more spoken - the kind of thing that Victoria Wood does now. Overall, the dancing and entertainment lift this film past the "OK" category and it is worth another watch.
