Saw this in 1930. I was a child so I remember little.
14 September 2004 | by albertsandersSee all my reviews

I think the print I saw was made by the original two-color Technicolor process. The film is about putting on a Broadway show. I enjoyed the music but didn't entirely understand the plot. There was one bit of dialogue used repeatedly wherein Nanette, who is a bit of a harebrain, makes silly suggestions and is admonished by a stuffy older man who says condescendingly "No, no, Nanette". I thought the funniest part was when this sort of visionary (I thought he was an architect but realize now he must have been the scenic designer or maybe the playwright) explains his revolutionary way of staging the show. Something like this: the show will be performed in the orchestra and a swimming pool will be in the balcony. His listener asks "then where is the audience?" The reply: "On the stage!" The rest of my life I have occasionally thought of and sung to myself the song from the movie: "When skies are gray, I like to say/I want to be happy so I can make you happy too..." I have always wanted to hear it performed but I never have.
