Critic Reviews for Anything Goes
It gets by, but without distinction.
There are many features in which the stage production was better. However, a picture must be judged as though one had never seen the stage version and, in all fairness, this Is a pleasant film.
It is rapid, hilarious, and competently directed by Lewis Milestone, whose penchant for playing with trick camera angles probably produces more results with less cost in a musical than in any other form of cinematography.
Ethel Merman comes from the original cast and her job in the picture equals her job in the stage version, which means aces. But Charlie Ruggles as the gag gangster is miscast.
Taken item by item, here is the material for a smashing musical. Taken in the mass, the film lacks that final voltage which jerks pleasant entertainment into the records class.
It's amusing entertainment if you don't mind the crazy confusion.
