Busby Berkeley's enjoyable musical marks the feature screen debut of Gene Kelly, who enjoys great rapport with Judy Garland.

this movie would've been so much more amazing with color. gene kelly gives a respectable - but not stunning - debut as a pretty unlikeable character brimming with infectious charm. judy garland is...okay. sometimes she doesn't give eye contact and it's kind of unsettling to see her close-up sometimes. but all in all, it's fun and i love that "me and my gal" song!
