Trivia

Judy Garland sings two numbers in the film: "Look for the Silver Lining" and "Who?". She also sang "Do You Love Me?" but it was cut before release. Her sequences were filmed by her then new husband, Vincente Minnelli. See more »

Worth seeing for the color and music
8 October 2002 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Biography of song writer Jerome Kern played by Robert Walker. I'm not sure how factual this is but my guess is not very. It just seems an excuse for MGM to trot out all their musical and dancing stars out in bright, billiant Technicolor to belt out Kern's tunes. As for the non-musical numbers the "drama" is trite and everybody is so nice and squeaky clean you want to scream--and Walker seems VERY uncomfortable in the title role.

Still it looks just great and there are many musical highlights: the mini-production of "Showboat"; Lena Horne singing "Can't Help Loving Dat Man"; young, beautiful and bosomy Angela Landsbury belting out a dance hall song; the title tune; Judy Garland sings two numbers and Van Johnson singing and dancing (!!!). The other numbers are good but just lack that spark to make them memorable.

So...see it for the music.
