Splashy Broadway productions have long inspired Hollywood movies, who consistently revel in Broadway’s competitive auditions, personal and professional struggles, heartbreaks and over-the-top successes. Stamina, luck and temperance often superseded talent. But despite all the hardships and setbacks, “The show must go on!” Right?
“The Broadway Melody” boasted that it was Hollywood’s first “All Talking! All Singing! All Dancing!” movie! It became a box-office sensation as people stood in long lines, waiting to pay 35-cents for a ticket. Back then, folks wanted music, songs and dancing…and “The Broadway Melody of 1929” delivered.
As a result, MGM pulled in $4-million during the film’s original run and its new sound technology revolutionized cinema. The film’s success also produced numerous imitations, knock-offs and sequels!
“The Broadway Melody” tells the story of two sisters struggling for fame on Broadway, and how they achieved it with a roguish song and dance man who woos both of their hearts. Although the film’s camera work and plot is dated by today’s standard, the film still entertains thanks to its pre-code costumes and fun musical score.
