Movie Info

Dick Powell and Ruby Keeler reunite once again for this musical salute to the West Point Military Academy, including many scenes shot at West Point with "the full cooperation of the United States Army." Powell is Canary Dorcey, a private at a Hawaiian army post where he meets the perky Kitt Fits (Ruby Keeler), and she proceeds to flirt with him. Unable to handle the love games, Canary escapes Hawaii by getting an appointment at West Point, where he diligently pursues his studies and tries to forget about dames. But four years later, Kit shows up at West Point with her father, General Jack Fitts (Henry O'Neill), who has accepted the position of the new West Point commander. After some sparring and hedging, a visit to the Kissing Rock along the Flirtation Walk turns the two little lovebirds around, and soon enough they are appearing in the annual West Point musical revue, all forgiven.

Critic Reviews for Flirtation Walk

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (2)

Flirtation Walk is bright and diverting entertainment.

March 26, 2009 | Full Review…

Flirtation Walk seems to be assured of a large and enthusiastic clientele, and it seems unlikely that the patriotic cinema public will let the Military Academy or the gallant producers down.

March 25, 2006 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

No great songs in the Wrubel-Dixon score.

January 31, 2012 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

This movie, again teaming Dick Powell and Ruby Keeler, was part of a cycle of musicals that Warners made during the Depression, the best of which was Forty-Second Street.

Overall well worth watching.

Audience Reviews for Flirtation Walk


I think there is a reason that this isn't shown very often. There is also a reason why it easily gets a G rating. There is nothing to offend anyone nor is there anything to keep someone interested. A dull little tale.
