Description by OLDIES.com:

Eleanor Powell taps the spangled ebullience of "Broadway Rhythm" in Broadway Melody of 1936, 15-year-old Judy Garland sings a smitten "Dear Mr. Gable" to a portrait of Hollywood's King in Broadway Melody of 1938 and both actresses achieve career breakthroughs.

Powell plays an Albany girl-next-door who poses as France's and Broadway's exotic La Belle Arlette in the Oscar-winning '36 romp. The '38 tale has her portraying a horse trainer who's just as much at ease in taps and tuxedo as she is in riding boots and jodhpurs. Judy steps lively, too, joining Buddy Ebsen for "Everybody Sing." These star-making Melodies are playing every classic fan's song.

Product Description:

Would-be stage star Eleanor Powell masquerades as a Parisian singer in order to win a part in producer Robert Taylor's latest play in "Broadway Melody of 1936." With Buddy Ebsen, Una Merkel, and Jack Benny as a scheming newspaper columnist; tunes include "You Are My Lucky Star," "Broadway Rhythm" and "Sing Before Breakfast." Then, Taylor's planning a show on the Great White Way again, but his backer doesn't want unknown dancer Powell as the revue's star, in "Broadway Melody of 1938." The cast includes Ebsen, George Murphy, Sophie Tucker, and Judy Garland (who sings "Dear Mr. Gable"). 3 1/2 hrs. total on two discs. Standard; Soundtracks: English Dolby Digital mono, French Dolby Digital mono; Subtitles: English (SDH), French; audio-only outtakes; bonus shorts "Sunkist Stars at Palm Springs" (1936), "To Spring" (1936), "That Mothers Might Live" (1938), "Pipe Dreams" (1938); theatrical trailers; radio program "Good News of 1938"; radio spot.
