Audience Reviews for Broadway Melody of 1936

    This film has a good, but utterly predictable, story. Fortunately this movie was funny, mostly because of Jack Benny, otherwise it would be another boring romantic comedy with musical numbers. Overall, pretty good.

    Ah yes. The Broadway Melody of 1936...the sequel to the Broadway Melody (which I am reviewing next) and the prequel to the Broadway Melody of 1940. A good chance to catch the old vaudeville crowd but there isn't much to the story here.
