Movie Lovers' Ratings & Reviews:
Based on 17 ratings.
If you are an Eddie Cantor fan (which I am), this disk is well worth it for the full presentation of this very famous routine. The final few minutes of the film also have a nice display of some Ziegfield tableaux. The lower rating is because the rest of the film drew a blank for me.
I saw this movie on the local PBS channel years ago and never forgot it, and was so happy to find it available again. It's full of the "early talkie" ambience of 1929 films - overlong monologues, badly-timed acts, clumsy dancing, but the viewer feels right at home in the shoddy backstage world of showbiz people. The most harrowing character is the selfish, ambitious stage mother who shoves her daughter Gloria into performing, at the cost of the girl losing her boyfriend for good. Despite a story line that was already trite by then, it's a swell flick.
