What an unexpected delight, this put a huge smile on my face. Giddily entertaining musical comedy, with truly funny (and bawdy) jokes, terrific songs, those magical Busby Berkeley dance numbers, charming performances, and a plot that never gets too fussy. The camerawork is quite impressive, too; despite being entirely about a stage production, Bacon & Berkeley utilize techniques that are purely cinematic.

Dat ending. Mostly enjoyable, kinda hokey at times though. The dance numbers are really fun to watch but the dialogue is often bad, yet the story is actually better than most musicals. Dick Powell was pretty awesome and nice supporting role for Ginger Rogers.

Classic and quintessential. Cosmopolitan and escapist to be sure, but commendably brings the glamor and decadence of show business down to a human level. And then it bursts into rhythmic bliss. The final act is an astonishing feat of song and dance, cinematography and editing. Just an absolutely delightful film, with a few catchy tunes and a bit of pre-code sauciness.

Last half an hour with spectacular dance scenes: score 100. Hour before this: score 50. Very faulty but the Busby Berkeley parts take my breath away and thus definitely worth seeing.

Mostly typical screwball stuff that I'm not really a fan of, but it's a decent one still. It's the actual musical in the third act that will make this memorable for me.
