CLOSE LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:

D: Alfred E. Green. Dick Powell, Ruby Keeler, Jack Oakie, Joan Blondell, Hugh Herbert, Paul Draper, Louise Fazenda, Marie Wilson. Neglected Warner Bros. musical is quite good, with usual boy-meets-girl plot framing tasteful musical numbers. Includes perhaps-definitive Hugh Herbert performance.

D: Frank Borzage. Dick Powell, Ruby Keeler, Pat O'Brien, Ross Alexander, Guinn Williams, Henry O'Neill, Tyrone Power. West Point plot is cliched and trivial as cadet Powell falls in love with officer's daughter Keeler; some fairly good numbers highlighted by ``Mr. and Mrs. Is the Name.''

CLOSE LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:

D: Lloyd Bacon. Warner Baxter, Ruby Keeler, George Brent, Bebe Daniels, Dick Powell, Guy Kibbee, Una Merkel, Ginger Rogers, Ned Sparks, George E. Stone. The definitive backstage musical still has plenty of sass--along with its cliches. Ailing director Baxter puts everything into what may be his final show, then leading lady Daniels twists her ankle! Good thing Ruby Keeler's on hand. Harry WarrenAl Dubin songs include title tune, "Young and Healthy,'' "You're Getting to Be a Habit with Me,'' "Shuffle Off to Buffalo.'' Busby Berkeley's ground-breaking production numbers are sensational. Scripted by Rian James and James Seymour, from Bradford Ropes' story. Adapted for the Broadway stage 50 years later. Also shown in computer-colored version.

CLOSE LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:

D: Ray Enright. Dick Powell, Olivia de Havilland, Charles Winninger, Allen Jenkins, Bonita Granville, Penny Singleton. Good variation on spoiled-rich-girl-meets-poor-but- hardworking-boy idea. Winninger, as Olivia's wealthy father, and Singleton, as their maid, are hilarious. Film is full of great supporting comics (Grady Sutton, Thurston Hall, Arthur Housman, etc.), and includes "You Must Have Been a Beautiful Baby.''

D: Andre de Toth. Dick Powell, Lizabeth Scott, Jane Wyatt, Raymond Burr, John Litel, Byron Barr. Married man's brief extramarital fling may cost him his job and marriage.
