Underrated MGM musical directed by Stanley Donen; a likable score and the chance to see Bob Fosse in a featured role add pep to a routine backstage plot. Future "Deep Throat" co-star Helen Wood (Dolly Sharp) has a featured role.

As far as B pictures go, this MGM trifle is pleasant enough. The plot is fairly routine and the production values shoestring, but anything with Bob Fosse in an acting role is worth seeing. Debbie Reynolds is pretty cute, too.

Some good dancing but strictly routine musical. The performers do their best but the script lets them down.

Bouncy but routine fluff musical.

I'm not sure why this became one of Donen's lesser-knowns. Maybe because it focuses more on dance than songs? At any rate, it's delightful, and Bob Fosse and Debbie Reynolds get a few dance duets together.

Typical musical that will turn up being some high school's senior play. Best part: Bob Fosse.

this is an obscure musical that deserves to be seen by many so-called lovers of the screen musical. the cast includes the champions, bob fosse, debbie reynolds and helen wood. they are dancing the screen to pieces in this one.

this forgotten musical, like the columbia 'my sister eileen' needs to be saved and studied by people that love musicals. first off it's impossible to talk about how much you love bob fosse and know neither of these pieces. period. i don't care about 'cabaret' and 'chicago'. see these and get back to me. then the champions. neither of them, gower especially, were gifted as actors but dammit if they couldn't dance with such love and style and sexiness! debbie reynolds became quite a little hoofer working with gene kelly and was even more of one by time she did this film. and helen wood! helen wood! miss girl was FIERCE!!!!!!!!!!!! jazz, pointe work, acro--the compleat dance long before 'so you think you can dance'. like i said, see this and die of pleasure.
