Description by OLDIES.com:
A remake of 1929's The Broadway Melody, Two Girls on Broadway follows the heart-tugging adventures of a dancer who loses both her shot at the big time and her stage-partner fiance to her talented kid sister. The story may have been a bit familiar, but the actress playing the kid sister was not. Lana Turner was film land's newest sensation, the movie magazines' hot seller, the Blonde Bonfire breathlessly advertised as "Hollywood's glamour-plus girl." With old pros Joan Blondell and George Murphy playing the other sides of the show-biz triangle and production numbers set to catchy tunes, Two Girls on Broadway proved to be a fine vehicle for Turner, showcasing the new star's graceful dancing and unmistakable screen charisma.
TWO GIRLS ON BROADWAY is an updated reworking of MGM's Oscar-winning 1929 musical BROADWAY MELODY. Joan Blondell and Lana Turner play a vaudeville "sister" act, slightly more talented than the similar duo in BROADWAY MELODY. The twosome have sworn never to break up, but that was before hoofer George Murphy entered the scene. Blondell realizes that it's Turner whom Murphy loves, so she nobly steps aside to make room for her baby sister. TWO GIRLS ON BROADWAY was another step in the right direction for the blossoming career of Lana Turner, here permitted to show off her terpsichorean skills.
