  • If the film lacks something of the engaging freshness Babes in Arms had on the stage, it retains the bounce and the breezy comedy.

  • Babes in Arms wouldn't be so much of a film for the back stage story fundamentally is trite were it not for the animated work of its stars, and the incidental doings.

    February 19, 2021 | Full Review…
  • The film has lavish scenes elaborate song and dance numbers and a plausible narrative to string it together.

    February 19, 2021 | Full Review…
  • We definitely don't like the screen play by Jack McGowan and Kay Van Riper. If we must have hokum, let us at least disguise it gracefully, even when it's with music.

    February 19, 2021 | Full Review…
  • Mickey performs with all the youthful vigor he is capable of throwing into a screen role.

    February 19, 2021 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • When the film is finished, it is still the Rooney-Garland combination which has put the picture over as one of the most entertaining and laughable of the year.

    I'm not a big fan of the early Mickey Rooney stuff. Yeah yeah. Its cute and sentimental but it just doesn't translate well anymore.
