Heart, Spunk, and Mitzi Gaynor: Ain't We Got Fun? YES.
16 October 2007 | by (United States of America) – See all my reviews

If you're asking yourself "What the hell is BLOODHOUNDS OF Broadway?", I'll tell you: it is one hell of an entertaining movie musical. Inspired by the stories of Damon Runyon---as was "Guys and Dolls" (1955)--this 1952 Fox film stars Miss Mitzi Gaynor as backwoods-belle-gone-Broadway "Emily Ann Stackerlee." Southern-drawlin' Mitzi impresses a cynical, tough-talking set of New Yorkers with her unassuming charm, her spectacular song-and-dance talent, and her, um, bloodhounds. She ends up falling for one of the toughs; will he return her affection? A Technicolor gem, BLOODHOUNDS enjoys: fine production values, fun songs ("Cindy," "I've Got a Feelin' You're Foolin'", "Eighty Miles Outside of Atlanta", "Jack of Diamonds", etc.), outstanding choreography by Robert Sidney, and a well-written screenplay winningly performed (and filmed).

Does it sound worth checking out? IT IS.

A buried treasure no more, BLOODHOUNDS OF Broadway is an example of American film musical entertainment at its best. It is also an eloquent early example of Mitzi Gaynor's brilliance as an entertainer--one of America's finest.

Apparently the 2007 DVD release will include as a special feature an on-camera interview with Miss Gaynor.
