Trivia

During the circus horseback sequence in the show "Sunny" Judy Garland was doubled by a professional rider from the Ringling Brothers Circus. The switch is made when the extras crowd around her just before she enters the ring and goes to the horse. The camera is far enough away for the rest of the sequence that the face of the double is not clear. See more »

Goofs

A close up the Playbill shows the number "Till the Clouds Roll By" is the 3rd song in Act One, yet when the number is over, the curtain comes down and everyone leaves the theatre. See more »

This a good movie musical of the '40's
6 February 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I have always liked this movie and as time goes on it seems to be a bit dated but if you like Technicolor and musicals you will like this movie. Most of the stars are unfamiliar to audiences today and you must suspend your belief in this being a true story of Jerome Kern and just enjoy the music and dance. Great Judy Garland sequences and great color. Unfortunately, the movie's copyright has lapsed and you can only get inferior versions on DVD. Occasionally, TCM will show this film with a good print. Jerome Kern, by his own admission, was not very exciting, so having Robert Walker play him didn't harm the man's reputation. Good job by Van Heflin. The worst performance has to be the woman who plays Kern's wife. All musical numbers are well done and great entertainment. I recommend this for anyone who wants to see an old 40's musical, keeping in mind what audiences in those days liked and expected.
