Golden Years.
24 January 2007 | by (United States of Great America.) – See all my reviews

Greetings all viewing this! Okay ladies and gentlemen, I have watched The Girl Rush movie and just absolutely loved it dearly. Just knowing that Roz and the rest of the awesome and legendary actors and actresses in the movie was just fantastic. And the music and wonderful choreography was phenomenal.

To witness the old Las Vegas, in its heyday was just cool and memorable, you all remember the Flamingo and the different Marquee flashes that occurred during the beginning of the movie, like Sophie Tucker and Eartha Kitt, lit up billboard and the casino, and then the landscapes. I just adore this movie and the actors and dancers in it. In fact I'm going to watch this again and just catch things I may have missed by the visual and audio aspects. I feel that: The Girl Rush movie is Good as Gold.

OKay I had watched this movie again (3x), and just fell in love with this movie once again, it just make me feel so happy and love the quip's in between the script. I love to see the actors, humor and the Las Vegas background and setting from back in the day. This movie captivates me, and Im glad this particular web-page in honor of this movie and its actors is up and still running after all these years since its makings. Thank you for posting this and letting me express my feelings and sharing. California fan...Golden State.
