Storyline

Headlines announce that women will run the city for a day. The day's mayor sings a challenge to her lieutenants and they respond in close harmony that they'll make the city pretty. Then they rush to the train station to meet opera singer Madame Beverly. At the station, they ask for help, prompting the woman at the information booth to sing, "Information Please." A chorus line taps their way around the station. Madame Beverly arrives and sings, "I Love to Sing a Whole Note." Then, at a unique reception at City Hall, the Mayor gives Madame Beverly the key to the city, and they reprise the three songs. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Silly but fun
13 March 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Short about what happens when girls (women) are allowed to rule an unnamed town for a day. June Allyson is the mayor and sets out to make the city more pretty (!!). It seems a famous (unnamed) opera singer (Beverly Kirk) is visiting the town that day and they want to make it perfect for her.

The short itself is harmless fun. 95% of the dialogue is sung and all the songs are tuneful it instantly forgettable. It also has a truly jaw-dropping tap dancing number in a train station. This also has some forgotten female dancing and singing acts. So it's fun as a harmless little short and also as a reminder of some really great female singers and dancers.
