Audience Reviews for Rose of Washington Square
Except for the names a blantant telling of the Fanny Brice story, Alice even sings My Man! The smoking number is odd to say the least and Al Jolson is very much an acquired taste.
pairing #3 of who were 20th century top box office draws alice faye & tyrone power they work well together added plus seeing power play a bad guy like he did in jesse james must have been fun 4 him 2 play bad too.
No matter what you say or do, it's alright by me.
Rose Sargent is a quickly rising singer with a loser boyfriend that treats her well but can't stay out of the law's eye. She loves him so much and won't let him go no matter how much trouble he gets in, but will his ways ruin her career?
"I wish you were in some kind of trouble."
"So I could get you out of it."
Gregory Ratoff, director of Barricade, Hotel for Women, The Men in Her Life, Irish Eyes are Smiling, Paris Underground, and The Men in Her Life, delivers Rose of Washington Square. The storyline for this picture is entertaining and fun to watch unfold but the musical numbers are a bit too long and drawn out. The acting is excellent and the cast includes Tyrone Power, Alice Faye, Al Jolson, Louis Prima, and William Frawley.
"How about a little snort then?"
I DVR'd this picture off Turner Classic Movies (TCM) because I adore Tyrone Power. I thought this film was okay but nothing special. I adored the two main characters but found the theatre scenes overdrawn and very boring. Overall, this is worth watching once but I wouldn't go out of my way to see it.
