Broadway Melody of 1938 ★★½ 1937

Third entry in the melody series lacks the sparkle of “Broadway Melody of 1936” despite the all star cast. Lots of singing and dancing without much charm. Two bright spots: a young Garland singing the now famous “Dear Mr. Gable” and the always lovely Powell's dance numbers. DBroadway Rhythm; Dear Mr. Gable (You Made Me Love You); A New Pair of Shoes; Yours and Mine; I'm Feeling Like a Million; Everybody Sing; Follow in My Footsteps; Your Broadway and My Broadway; Sun Showers. 110m/B VHS . Eleanor Powell, Sophie Tucker, George Murphy, Judy Garland, Robert Taylor, Buddy Ebsen, Binnie Barnes; D: Roy Del Ruth; C: William H. Daniels; M: Nacio Herb Brown, Arthur Freed.
