LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:    

D: Robert Alton. Red Skelton, Virginia O' Brien, Gloria Grahame, Leon Ames, Alan Mowbray, Hugo Haas. Lifeless remake of George S. KaufmanMarc Connelly play (filmed before in 1924 and 1932) about movie-struck simpleton's adventures in Hollywood. A real disappointment. Choreographer Alton's directing debut.

LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:    

D: Mervyn LeRoy. Kathryn Grayson, Red Skelton, Howard Keel, Ann Miller, Marge & Gower Champion, Zsa Zsa Gabor. Second screen version of ROBERTA is a lesser MGM musical, but definitely has its moments as American comic Skelton inherits half-interest in a Paris dress salon run by Grayson and Marge Champion. Miller and the Champions add punch to the musical sequences; Vincente Minnelli directed the fashion show sequence. Songs include "Smoke Gets in Your Eyes,'' "I Won't Dance,'' and title tune.

Red Skelton headlines a joyful Technicolor-« remake of Roberta as a New York producer who inherits a failing Parisian fashion house. His partners are Howard Keel and Gower Champion... more

LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:    

D: Edward Buzzell. Eleanor Powell, Red Skelton, Virginia O'Brien, Bert Lahr, John Emery, Tommy Dorsey Orchestra, Frank Sinatra, Jo Stafford. Nonsensical plot of Skelton thinking U.S. agent is working for Axis; shipboard yarn has some salty dancing and singing, good Dorsey numbers featuring drummer Buddy Rich.

Ship Ahoy, a patriotic musical comedy of the WWII era, swings to the tempo of it's big-band times. Eleanor Powell plays a leggy lead dancer on a cruise ship who is asked to transport... more

LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:    

D: Jack Donohue. Red Skelton, Gloria De Haven, Walter Slezak, Edward Arnold, James Gleason, Jay C. Flippen, Polly Moran. Fine Skelton romp with Red as would-be inventor of unbreakable glass, involved with gangsters and crooked businessman; Slezak is perfect as bad-guy.

Sheer, utter madness is the order of the day in this laugh riot on wheels that features one of America's all-time favorite funnymen, Red Skelton. In a story ranging from the weird to... more

LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:    

D: Robert Z. Leonard. Red Skelton, Tim Considine, Jane Greer, Loring Smith, Philip Ober. Sentimental remake of THE CHAMP about a washed-up, self-destructive comic with a devoted son who looks out for him. Skelton's not bad in rare dramatic role; Considine is so good he overcomes some of the hokiness of script. Charles Bronson has a bit role in dice game scene.

LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:    

D: Edward Sedgwick. Red Skelton, Brian Donlevy, Arlene Dahl, George Coulouris, Lloyd Gough, John Ireland, Charles Dingle, Joyce Compton. Hilarious Skelton comedy set during Civil War with Red a bumbling Yankee spy down South. Reminiscent of silent comedies, since Buster Keaton devised many of the film's gags.

Red Skelton plays Aubrey Filmore, a feather-brained but lovable bellboy who dreams of becoming an agent for the Union's secret service during the Civil War. He gets his chance when... more

LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:    

D: Harry Pollard. James B. Lowe, Virginia Grey, Margarita Fisher, George Siegmann, Eulalie Jensen, Arthur Edmund Carew, Vivien Oakland, Lucien Littlefield, Gertrude Astor. Ingratiatingly heart-tugging (albeit occasionally overwrought) version of Harriet Beecher Stowe's famed abolitionist novel, which charts the plight of various slaves and slave owners in the Deep South prior to and during the Civil War. Sets out to humanize African Americans by depicting the heartlessness of slavery, yet also reflects its era with the worst kind of "dancin' darkie'' stereotypes.

An earnest attempt to depict the harsh realities of slavery while lamenting the passage of the idealized South, Uncle Tom's Cabin is an extravagant historical drama and, at a cost of... more

LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:    

D: David Butler. Shirley Temple, John Boles, Jack Holt, Karen Morley, Bill Robinson, Stepin Fetchit, Guinn "Big Boy'' Williams. One of Shirley's best films, a Civil War saga set in the Old South, with our heroine managing to wrap Union officer Holt around her little finger and protect her Confederate officer father (Boles). Temple and Robinson do some delightful dancing as well. Also shown in computer-colored version.

In her lavish period costumes, Shirley Temple is the delightful heroine of the appealing Civil War adventure, spiced with humor, fun and several rousing song-and-dance duets with... more
