Storyline

When Catherine Terris's career in Hollywood hits the skids, she heads back to the site of her first great triumphs...Broadway! She takes the lead in a play which is being directed by Gordon Evans, the man who was both her Svengali and her lover. Evans is still bitter that she walked out on him to become the toast of Hollywood years earlier. Can Terris and Evans put aside their mutual animosity long enough to make a go of this production. The way things start off, it doesn't seem likely... Written by Alfred Jingle

Rather stodgy musical
6 January 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

'She's Back On Broadway' stars Virginia Mayo, Steve Cochran and Gene Nelson, and is rather a pedestrian example of a minor 50s musical. Characters are fairly stock - from Mayo's star-struck ingénue to Nelson's charming hoofer. Songs are OK but unmemorable and not that well-staged.

There are many better musicals than this - 'She's Working Her Way Through College' and 'Painting The Clouds With Sunshine' (the loose remake of 'Gold Diggers of 1933') for example. There are better musical stars from the same period - Vera-Ellen, Doris Day.

Warner Bros musicals like this one were no threat to the gloss of MGM, while Gene Nelson is no Gene Kelly. However, if you like musicals generally, 'She's Back On Broadway' is watchable, but not groundbreaking.
