Storyline

Al Howard may be a star on Broadway, but he is no longer welcomed by any producer. It seems that he just trots off to Mexico any time he wants causing shows to close and producers to lose money. When his sister Molly can no longer find Al work, she teams him up with talented Dorothy for a club date in Chicago. Flush with another success, Al wants to open his own club on Broadway, so he borrows money from a gangster to open the show. Al has Dorothy, who he ignores, the gangsters dough and the gangster's sweetie Luana. All he has to do is keep them all happy, but Luana wants Al. Written by Tony Fontana <tony.fontana@spacebbs.com>

Trivia

Following the sensational success of Columbia's The Jolson Story (1946), Warner Bros. decided that Al Jolson's revived fame was a good reason to reissue this film. Although there were no changes or censor cuts, Warners did make up new opening credits, which added the famous later Warner "fanfare" and gave Jolson solo over-the-title billing. (Originally he and Ruby Keeler had both been given star billing. She was now listed in smaller print, with the rest of the supporting cast.) Additionally, the studio added a written prologue to make sure audiences knew that the story was set back in the long-ago and far-away time of 1935. See more »

"Go Into Your Dance"
11 February 2007 | by See all my reviews

"Go Into Your Dance" was a terrific movie in the sense of movie historical value. Jolson and Keeler were not really known as good actors. Jolson and Keeler were at their best as entertainers. Jolson's singing and Keeler's dancing. The greatest part of this film is are the musical numbers. And historically, the fact that it was the only film in which husband and wife Jolson and Keeler ever appeared together. Many of the songs in which Keeler was in were way before my time. Yet I remember them from watching the old Warner Brothers cartoons when I was a kid. It was great finally seeing where they actually came from. I only wish that "Go Into Your Dance" was available on DVD.
