Nothing very 'Champion' here
9 December 2002 | by (Minffordd, North Wales) – See all my reviews



Marge and Gower Champion were a popular dance team in the 1950s, probably best-known for 'Show Boat', in which their roles were very much secondary. They did some of their best work in television, notably in a musical special with Yves Montand. Although they were excellent dancers, and Gower was a very talented director/choreographer with some ability as a comedian, neither one of them had much acting ability ... which seriously compromised them when MGM attempted to move them up from supporting roles in other people's musicals.

'Everything I Have Is Yours' was MGM's attempt at a starring vehicle for the Champions. Frankly, they aren't good enough actors to carry the weight of a feature film, even a musical. The Champions play Pamela and Chuck Hubbard, a husband-and-wife dance team. (What a stretch!) The Hubbards have attained stardom together, but there are backstage problems in the marriage, and they agree to a trial separation. Pamela becomes involved with another man (Dennis O'Keefe in a bland performance), and for a while it looks like the Hubbards will go their separate ways permanently. But this is an MGM musical, so of course there's a happy ending...

'Everything I Have Is Yours' is froth ... which wouldn't be bad at all, if it were enjoyable froth. This movie is turgid. Imagine a musical version of a soap opera, and that's what you've got here. Worse luck, the musical numbers aren't incorporated into the plot of the movie ... instead, the plot screeches to a halt (and I do mean 'screeches') whenever it's time for another dance number. When the music stops, the plot lurches forward again. This is a bad movie. I'll rate it 2 points out of 10. As a trivia note, I'll mention that Marge Champion (real name Marjorie Belcher; I wonder why she changed it) was the half-sister of silent-film star Lina Basquette, who was so good in Cecil B. DeMille's 'The Godless Girl'. I recommend you see that movie instead of this one.
