BABES ON BROADWAY (1941) B/W 121m dir: Busby Berkeley

w/Mickey Rooney, Judy Garland, Fay Bainter, Virignia Weidler, Ray McDonald, Richard Quine, Donald Meek, Alexander Woollcott, Luis Alberni, James Gleason

From The Movie Guide: "This sequel to BABES IN ARMS is slightly superior, serving up Rooney and Garland in everything from soup to nuts. BROADWAY presents Rooney at his enthusiastic peak, especially when he impersonates Carmen Miranda, but he's still eclipsed by Garland when she sings 'F.D.R. Jones.' Minstrel finale and tributes to past theatrical performers are dynamite moments. Trivia fans should watch for Joe Yule, Rooney's father, as Mason, and for the debut of Margaret O'Brien. Burton Lane and Ralth Freed's 'How About You?' earned an Oscar nomination."
