Movie Info

The top performers of the 1920s strut their stuff in this star-studded variety show. Actress Joan Crawford displays her singing talents with "Got a Feeling for You." Comedy duo Laurel and Hardy bring on the laughs with their magic act, and Conrad Nagel turns on the romance by singing "You Were Meant For Me." In the revue's second act, silent star Buster Keaton performs an under-the-sea dance, and Norma Shearer and John Gilbert hilariously lampoon "Romeo and Juliet."

  • No semblance of a story, and considering cast nobody is going to care.

  • MGM's entry in the cycle of all-star studio revues that came with the advent of sound; it was by far the most popular, though the waning of some of the celebrities featured makes it seem a little creaky today.

    June 24, 2006 | Full Review…
  • It is a talking and singing film free from irritating outpourings of coarse slang or a tedious, sobbing romance.

    June 24, 2006 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…
  • It has a legion of stage and screen personalities participating, it is tuneful and part of it is in natural colors.

    June 23, 2020 | Full Review…
  • An early sound musical, this plotless revue, emceed by Conrad Nagel and Jack Benny, is a big mishmash with Shearer and Barrymore acting and then spoofing the balcony scene from Romeo and Juliet, and Joan Crawford not only dancing but singing too!

    March 3, 2008 | Rating: C | Full Review…
  • It's a sometimes fascinating, sometimes tedious historical artifact.
