there are a lot of now-mysterious impressions of famous Broadway stars of the period, but otherwise the show is pretty darn good.

Rousing but corny musical.

Ozus' World Movie Reviews

A superb sequel to Babes in Arms, also directed by Berkeley, this musical sees Judy Garland and Mickey Rooney impersonate Carmen Miranda, George Cohan; the couple's appearance in black face was not controversial at the time.

Audience Reviews for Babes on Broadway


Great fun, Mickey Rooney and Judy Garland are so much fun to watch. The highlight is Mickey Rooney imitating Carmen Miranda! It is hysterically funny and a must see. Great musical numbers and of course Judy Garland's magnificent voice would enhance any film. Great score, well written. It's a little overlong but I was never bored.

James Higgins
