Broadway Melody of 1929


USA 1929, 111 minutes
Dir. Harry Beaumont
Rating: [G]
Genres: Classics / Musical


Aroview: "100% All Talking! 100% All Singing! 100% All Dancing!" - this creaky MGM tale of two sisters bringing their act to Broadway was tremendously exciting in it's day, picking up best picture at the second ever Academy Awards ceremony.
While it's still interesting as a blueprint for early musicals, and illustrates only too well the rough transition from silent to talkies, it's too technically clunky and hopelessly outdated to be anything more.
