Audience Reviews for Look for the Silver Lining


Puff piece bio of Marilyn Miller smooths out all her rough edges, including the removal of her infamous prickly personality and imperious attitude, but includes a lot of beautiful music. Lush production values, an amusing performance by Ray Bolger and Gordon MacRae's glorious voice all make this worth catching but it's worthless as a realistic representation of Miller's life.

Super Reviewer

60/100. A very average musical, uplifted by good color cinematography,excellent art direction and fine costume design. It's certainly well produced. Very typical of it's day. There are some good tunes, but none of the music stands out. But the score was nominated for an Academy Award. Rosemary DeCamp and Charlie Ruggles are quite good in supporting roles.
