The producers of Broadway Melody of 1936 had lots of money to spend on their revue, and they spent it wisely in securing expert talent rather than famous Hollywood names. Full Review

Rating: B -- Despite Robert Taylor's stiff, non-singing tunr, this is the second and best of the four Broadway Melody MGM made, largely due to Arthur Freed and Nacio Herb Brown's songs and Eleanor Powell's dazzling dancing. Full Review

By this time, it is no news to anyone that Eleanor Powell is one of the biggest new names in pictures... She sings pleasantly, she acts with naturalness and charm, there is no woman dancer in the world who can equal her, and she has such a nice face. Full Review

The whole of Melody is deft, and some of the specialties, such as Dr. Wildhack's snoring numbers, are tops. Full Review

Description by OLDIES.com:

Irene Foster (Eleanor Powell) comes to the Great White Way hoping that childhood-sweetheart-turned-Broadway-producer Robert Gordon (Robert Taylor) will recognize her – and her talent. He's too busy sparring with a dirt-dishing gossip columnist (Jack Benny) to notice, but his wisecracking, heart-of-gold secretary (Una Merkel) certainly does. She and Irene must use their wits – and all of Irene's abilities – to show Robert what he's missing.
