A Big, Sparkling Wonder!
- el debbo
Sitting in the balcony in a fine old theater in the 1920's, imagine seeing a Berkeley show LIVE! This movie is a close second...the plot's not that thin if you believe in love at first sight. Horton, Greenwood, and Pallette are terrific co-stars. I thought I saw Sal Mineo on the drums! Maybe not. The Tutti-Frutti number and Polka Dot grand finale are so imaginative and wild, they amazed me. I imagined a 40's family during the war years, parents and teens, going to see this film and leaving the theater happy, on a pink cloud. As opposed to our family leaving a theater in the sixties, seeing 'Bonnie and Clyde' and feeling disturbed and deflated. Watch 'The Gang's All Here' with a sense of wonder and enjoy for the blissful Technicolor spectacle that it is.
Sometimes a Banana Is More Than a Banana

Some musicals have a substantial story that could stand alone without the musical numbers, such as "My Fair Lady," which was based on the play "Pygmalion." At the other extreme are musicals that have a plot so thin, meager, and silly that it would be unwatchable without the music. "The Gang's All Here" is the second kind of musical. So now the question is, How good is the music? The music is only fair, but some say it has value as camp, owing to its garish Busby Berkeley numbers.

The Gang's All Here (1943)
- James Higgins
One of my favorite Alice Faye films, as well as Favorite Carmen Miranda films. The supporting cast is wonderful, in particular Eugene Pallette, Charlotte Greenwood and Edward Everett Horton. Great score and songs, colorful musical numbers and very entertaining. Beautifully done.
Great Movie to watch in bad weather
I love to watch musical movies and this was one of the first that got me started. I love the songs and I enjoy the dancing. It puts me into a time that I would not have known if it wasn't for The Gang's All Here!
