It's really OK to be a dancer
24 November 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The plot explores the idea of being accepted as a chorus girl. Will the upper class set acknowledge such a lowlife species? The story is trivial but holds an interest as Marilyn Monroe (Peggy) carries herself well in one of her early entries. Thankfully, we see her deliver her lines without that irritating baby-talk that became her trademark. She talks properly in this film! So, it's a treasure if only for that.

There is a good segment where Adele Jurgens (Mae) shows off some dance moves – probably the best moment of the film. The music is OK, Marilyn Monroe sings a couple of songs, but nothing too special.

The flimsy story wraps itself up over the course of an hour, but we watch it for Marilyn Monroe.
