Movie Info

Two music students, rather than face the responsibilities of life, repeatedly fail their exams so that they can stay in college. The students change their attitude, however, when they meet a woman who agrees to be their manager and both attempt to woo her as a way of getting a job in Artie Shaw's band. Featuring the Oscar-nominated "Would You Like to Be the Love of My Life?".

Audience Reviews for Second Chorus

  • Oct 16, 2018
    Or: The Artie Shaw Movie, wherein Artie plays and (kind of) acts, gamely supported by Fred, Paulette, and Burgess in some hastily put together "rivals competing for the same girl" anecdote (of which poor Burgess gets the goat, eh?). Charles Butterworth, inserted into the thing like the proverbial square peg, actually does better than everything but Shaw's music. It's interesting, sort of, watching Fred and Burgess pretend to play trumpet. Goddard does okay in her one dance routine with Fred.

    Strictly minor league musical despite Fred's presence. This is one of a couple low rent films he did between splitting with Ginger and landing at MGM.

    There's a hole in the plot you could drive a truck through, but of course, Fred is Magic.
