Perky June Allyson a few years before becoming a big star..., 15 October 2008
Author: Neil Doyle from U.S.A.

The only reason for watching this very dated musical short is the chance to see JUNE ALLYSON just a few years before she made her big movie star debut in "Best Foot Forward" at MGM.

This is a drab looking Warner musical short with June as the Mayor for a Day who wants to "Make the City Pretty" and joins the other gals for a reception to honor the arrival of Madame Beverly, an opera singer (BEVERLY KIRK). There's also a musical moment at Grand Central where a chorus line of girls do a tap routine imitating the shuffling noise of a train getting set for departure.

None of it is really interesting enough to make it an item I'd recommend, but fans of June Allyson will be able to sit through it just to watch the perky actress before stardom.
