Movie Info

For Me and My Gal, a leisurely period musical, represents the first on-screen dancing of MGM's new star Gene Kelly. Judy Garland plays a member of a vaudeville troupe consisting of herself, George Murphy, Ben Blue and Lucille Norman. She leaves the act to join up with Kelly, who promises to propel her to the big time. Two unsuccessful years later, Garland and Kelly are still struggling in the small time, while Murphy and his bunch are headliners. Kelly nearly throws Garland over for singer Marta

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

Transcending the vortex of bulldozing patriotism are Kelly and Garland, harmonizing musically and emotionally

A nostalgic homage to vaudeville during the pre-WWI period that is no better than a routine musical.

Gene and Judy are inspired casting in this early MGM musical.

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!
