Don't Bother To Meet Me On Broadway *1/2
13 January 2007 | by edwagreenSee all my reviews

No wonder Marjorie Reynolds fled to television for the successful "Life of Riley" series. After making a dud like this, Miss Reynolds had nowhere to go.

The thin plot revolves around a guy who wants to produce a Broadway show with Marjorie his girlfriend.

He has a temper but soon finds a way to produce a benefit for charity run by Gene Lockhart and Spring Byington, a woman with a show business past of her own. Her son, in an extremely weak performance by Loren Tindel, is the romantic interest of singer Jinx Falkenburg. All this starts to change when Eddie Dolan (Fred Brady) and Reynolds come on the scene. It appears that this movie is going to be a change partners and dance epic.

Allen Jenkins is his usual funny self but with a poor script to work with, he is basically wasted as well as Gene Lockhart.

The quick ending seems to have been made so as to get out of all of this.
