Stunning Elanor Powell dances, great music highlight all time tops MGM musical.

March 14, 2009

It's ridiculous and tremendous fun, a veritable evening of entertainment with song and dance and comedy acts and a story that exists only to transition from one act to another.

Great musical numbers, but a lame plot and George Murphy work against it.

Audience Reviews for Broadway Melody of 1938

The least interesting of the MGM "Broadway Melody" series, notable only for Garland's "Dear Mr. Gable - You Made Me Love You" sequence and a gargantuan finale.

The best part was Judy Garland singing to a Clark Gable photograph "dear Mr Gable you made me love you" what a sweet moment in movie history! Of course Eleanor Powell just fantastic amazing tap dancer!!! And Robert Taylor a hot leading men. Great story and production =)
