LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:    

D: Norman Z. McLeod. Eleanor Powell, Ann Sothern, Robert Young, Lionel Barrymore, John Carroll, Red Skelton, Virginia O'Brien, Dan Dailey, Jimmy Dorsey and His Orchestra. Spunky musical of married songwriters Sothern and Young, with Powell and Skelton along for good measure. Fine score: title tune, "Fascinating Rhythm,'' "You'll Never Know,'' Oscar-winning "Last Time I Saw Paris.''

LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:    

D: Edward Buzzell. Eleanor Powell, Red Skelton, Virginia O'Brien, Bert Lahr, John Emery, Tommy Dorsey Orchestra, Frank Sinatra, Jo Stafford. Nonsensical plot of Skelton thinking U.S. agent is working for Axis; shipboard yarn has some salty dancing and singing, good Dorsey numbers featuring drummer Buddy Rich.

Ship Ahoy, a patriotic musical comedy of the WWII era, swings to the tempo of it's big-band times. Eleanor Powell plays a leggy lead dancer on a cruise ship who is asked to transport... more

LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:    

D: Roy Del Ruth. Jack Benny, Eleanor Powell, Robert Taylor, Una Merkel, Sid Silvers, Buddy Ebsen. Pleasant musi- comedy with Winchell-like columnist Benny trying to frame producer Taylor via dancer Powell, whose solo spots are pure delight. Arthur FreedNacio Herb Brown songs: ``You Are My Lucky Star,'' ``Broadway Rhythm,'' ``I've Got a Feelin' You're Foolin' '' (which earned an Oscar for Dave Gould's dance direction).

LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:    

D: Vincente Minnelli. Red Skelton, Eleanor Powell, Richard Ainley, Patricia Dane, Lena Horne, Hazel Scott, Sam Levene, Butterfly McQueen, John Hodiak, Jimmy Dorsey and Orchestra. Strained, overlong musicomedy about a tailor's assistant obsessively in love with a stage star; good songs include "Star Eyes'' and "Taking a Chance on Love,'' but patchwork film lifts its big finale from Powell's earlier BORN TO DANCE! A remake (more or less) of Buster Keaton's SPITE MARRIAGE.

Lovely talented famous - stage star Constance Shaw is everything pants presser Joe Reynolds can't have. Then one day Constance decides to get back at her two-timing beau by marrying... more

D: Roy Del Ruth. Robert Taylor, Eleanor Powell, George Murphy, Binnie Barnes, Buddy Ebsen, Judy Garland, Sophie Tucker, Charles Igor Gorin, Raymond Walburn, Robert Benchley, Willie Howard, Billy Gilbert. Not up to 1936 MELODY, with tuneful but forgettable songs, overbearing Tucker, and elephantine finale. Powell's dancing is great and Garland sings ``Dear Mr. Gable.''

LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:    

D: W. S. Van Dyke. Eleanor Powell, Nelson Eddy, Frank Morgan, Edna May Oliver, Ray Bolger, Ilona Massey, Billy Gilbert. Elephantine MGM musical about romance between West Point cadet and mythical-kingdom princess. Living proof that money alone can't make a good movie. Cole Porter score includes "In the Still of the Night.''

Nelson Eddy's rich baritone Eleanor Powell's astonishing footwork and songs by Cole Porter - what more could a musical fan wish for? Rosalie lured huge film audiences with it's... more

LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:    

D: Preston Sturges. Brian Donlevy, Muriel Angelus, Akim Tamiroff, Allyn Joslyn, William Demarest, Louis Jean Heydt, Arthur Hoyt. Sturges' directorial debut (and Oscar-winning screenplay) isn't up to his later comedy classics, but Donlevy is excellent as bum who is manipulated into governor's chair by crooked political machine--then blows it all when he tries to be honest. Typically sharp dialogue, plus fine work by Sturges' stock company of character actors. Donlevy and Tamiroff reprised their roles as a gag in Sturges' THE MIRACLE OF MORGAN'S CREEK.

Preston Sturgess Academy Award-winning screenplay provides the spark for The Great McGinity, a satirical comedy that also marked his directorial debut. Depression-era bum Dan McGinty... more

LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:    

D: William Keighley. Bette Davis, Ann Sheridan, Monty Woolley, Billie Burke, Jimmy Durante, Richard Travis, Grant Mitchell, Mary Wickes, Elizabeth Fraser, Reginald Gardiner. Acerbic radio commentator Woolley (recreating his Broadway role) is forced to stay with Burke's Midwestern family for the winter, driving them crazy with assorted wacky friends passing through. Delightful adaptation of George S. KaufmanMoss Hart play. Scripted by the Epstein brothers. Also shown in computer-colored version.

Famed author Sheridan Whiteside possesses a tongue dipped in venom and a brain that can crack The New York Times crossword in four minutes. On a lecture tour in Ohio, he slips on the... more
