  • 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.

  • 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.
