Worth watching IF you like Mitzi
14 May 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Mitzi gets to strut her stuff in this almost wholly fictional biography of pioneering actress Lotta Crabtree. The actual story of Lotta's life, touring mining camps, forging what became early American theatre in the West and becoming a major philanthropist, was far more interesting than this surface collection of period inappropriate musical numbers tied tenaciously to a silly love story that never happened and makes Lotta seem foolish and naive.

Mitzi was a fantastic dancer and a pert personality and those two traits are much in evidence throughout the film so if you like her you'll like this. There is also the wonderful Una Merkel as Lotta's mother adding a bit of dash to the proceedings but she's the only member of the supporting cast that makes any impression.

A colorful movie but worthless as if you're interested in Miss Crabtree's story.
