When Kern goes to see Sally at Club Elite in Memphis, he hasn't written Show Boat yet. Therefore, it would be before 1927. However, the song she performs with Van Johnson, "I Won't Dance", wasn't written by Kern until 1935. See more »

An interesting film where MGM was at the highest of heights
Well this is an interesting film from the times when MGM was simply an enormous studio pouring out more film then, it seems we could ever watch.
I have to say this film is simply boring and the length is far too long. The idea of the film is great and there's one more factor that makes it memorable.
They say MGM had more stars then were in the galaxy. They have plenty in this film and some still stand today. Judy (Garland), Angela (Lansbury) and Frank (Sinatra) all gave the film zest with their musical numbers. However the only problem with the film is, it's very hard to watch in just one showing.
However if you like the history of MGM, watch the studio with power, zest and plenty of stars to pass the time as those clouds roll by.
