Audience Reviews for Tin Pan Alley


When this was made Alice Faye was queen of the Fox musical lot and so she is very much the focus of this ordinary film with a few good numbers but Betty Grable although clearly in the secondary role was just about to shoot to the top of the pack. The girls are well matched and while not the best partner either ever had make an enjoyable team too bad this wasn't in color it would have perked it up and probably added an extra bit of zip that is missing.
