Quotes

Eddie Simpson: Love is grand, simply grand!/ I'm in love, so you'll understand/ Why I rave. It's hard to behave!/ She's so cute, she's so sweet,/ I consider it such a treat/ To do nice things for the one I adore/ Baby wants to shop and then/ I take her down to the five-and-ten/ There's nothing to good for my baby!/ Baby likes a limousine,/ I show her one in a magazine./ There's nothing too good for my baby! Baby wants lots of love?/ Baby gets lots of love!/ Baby wants petting? Baby gets petting!/ That's what ...

we have to close one eye when he blacks up
25 January 2017 | by christopher-underwoodSee all my reviews

This is fine but I didn't enjoy it as much as the previous years, Whoopee!, Eddie Cantor is still great but here some of the scenes no longer seem to work as they much have done back in the day. Also, spirited performance though she gives, Charlotte Greenwood, doesn't quite seem to shine as many other girls do. Indeed the rest of the girls, whether in factory working gear (backless and braless!), gymnastic wear or swimming gear (and seemingly nude(!)) look tremendous throughout. The Busby Berkeley are magical as ever and the songs fine. Its just that one or two of the comedy routines show their age and the protracted finale has not worn well. Have to say though, Mr Cantor amazes and must have been absolutely sensational at the time. Even now his contortions make one wince and his routine when appointed efficiency manager, really funny even now. He could certainly sing too, although we have to close one eye when he blacks up.
