Storyline

This musical short film salutes the chorus girl, who is seen in the background of many musical numbers, adored by those who see her but is rarely given any recognition. A bevy of singing chorus girls introduce six musical numbers from Warner Bros. feature length motion pictures which highlight the all-female chorus. They are "All's Fair in Love and War" from Gold Diggers of 1937 (1936), "I'll Sing You a Thousand Love Songs" from Cain and Mabel (1936), "The Words Are in My Heart" from Gold Diggers of 1935 (1935), "Spin a Little Web of Dreams" from Fashions of 1934 (1934), "Aloha Oe" from Flirtation Walk (1934), and "The Song of the Marines" from The Singing Marine (1937).

Three Cheers for the Girls is a quite enjoyable archive of various Warner musical sequences
19 March 2010 | by (Baton Rouge, LA) – See all my reviews

Just watched this musical compilation short on the Thank Your Lucky Stars DVD. In this one, a bevy of chorus girls sing of their parts in various Warner Bros. musical movies though it's safe to assume since the clips shown are nearly a decade old, none of them were actually participants. Anyway, they're Busby Berkeley sequences that he did for the studio before his eventual departure for M-G-M in 1939. Oh, and the last archived number is actually that of Dick Powell and various men singing "Over the Sea" and "From the Halls of Montezuma". Anyway, this was quite enjoyable and so for that reason, Three Cheers for the Girls is well worth a look.
