Movie Info

Virtually everybody except President Roosevelt was in the lavish MGM backstage musical Dancing Lady. Joan Crawford stars as Janie Barlow, an impoverished dancer reduced to working in a seedy Manhattan burlesque house. While on a slumming party with his society friend, wealthy young Tod Newton (Franchot Tone) spots Janie in the burleycue chorus line and immediately falls in love with her.

A quintessential Joan Crawford Depression-era backstage melodrama, in which she plays an ambitious showgirl torn between Franchot Tone and Gable.

Audience Reviews for Dancing Lady

What an absolute delight. This little gem from 1933 has not gotten anywhere near the acclaim it deserves. If you're a fan of 1930s American cinema (and who isn't?), you have to put "Dancing Lady" on your list. I enjoyed every second of it. I'd even go so far as to say it's my new favorite early-30s movie.

A good cast, but an average story of dance and romance between show people and rich people. It wasn't all that interesting, but it's an okay movie.
