Movie Info

Running between 1907 and 1931, the Ziegfeld Follies were elaborate stage revues mounted by the great Broadway showman Florenz Ziegfeld, inspired by the Folies Bergères of Paris. In 1945, film producer Arthur Freed recreated the lavishness of Ziegfeld's shows with this all-star revue, consisting of comedy sketches and song-and-dance numbers featuring MGM Studios' musical comedy stars including Fred Astaire, Cyd Charisse, Judy Garland, Lucille Ball, Lena Horne and Red Skelton.

Audience Reviews for Ziegfeld Follies

  • Jun 05, 2011
    As it says in the movie, "Ziegfeld never cared so much about villains, plot, stories. The Ziegfeld Follies was itself a story of an era". So, while it doesn't offer anything in terms of narrative, this is a priceless document that gathers some of the biggest stars of the 40's, luminaries who have become celluloid icons. Sadly, the real star power (Judy Garland, Gene Kelly) appears too late into the picture, after an hour and a half of random musical numbers, dance sequences and comedic skits. So much style and so little substance does get tiresome after a while and, while the film's visually dazzling, it's also unbearably campy and over-the-top. Of course it didn't seem that way 60 years ago, but some bits are incredibly racist and/or offensive. See only for Garland's "The Great Lady Has An Interview" number and the amazing pairing of two of dance's biggest legends, Gene Kelly and Fred Astaire in "The Babbitt And The Bromide". Then again, you could watch those two clips on YouTube and save yourself the boredom.

    This movie doesn't exactly have a story, it's more of a showcase of song and dance numbers starring many great actors. A nice picture of the Ziegfeld Follies.

    Man, all the dancing and singing are awesome.. I love Fanny Brice and Gene Kelly's part.. This is one hell of a musical with glamorous set and beautiful outfit. a kind of movie that you will want to watch over and over again.
