Movie Lovers' Ratings & Reviews:
Based on 1131 ratings.
What with the plot sounding so great, I was prepared to be disappointed by the actual entertainment value of this film. But I was WRONG - this is a GREAT little film, and certainly the most entertaining of all the race films I've seen - and I've seen a lot. (DIRTY GERTIE is a close second.) BOY! is full of great music, features some impressive dancing, a fair amount of laughs, and, of course, the Kingfish in drag. (And the totally random cameo drum solo by Gene Krupa.) Since this came out on DVD, I have given away many, many copies of this film to people I know. An all-black cast drag comedy from 1947 - I mean, how many of those are there? This is entertainment, history, sociology, etc. all in one affordable package. EVERYONE should be familiar with this film, even if I have to buy you a copy myself.
