Steve D An absolute mess. The acting is worst of all. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 05/29/23 Full Review Audience Member above ave musical for WWII audiences Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/21/23 Full Review Audience Member Harmless MGM musical is lovely to look at (in Technicolor) but overlong and unfocused; loosely based on the Broadway hit Very Warm for May, the score retains the Jerome Kern song "All the Things You Are;" the film also spun off the hit tunes "Amor" and "Milkman, Keep Those Bottles Quiet." Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/27/23 Full Review ashley h Broadway Rhythm is a fun film. The music is incredible. Ginny Simms and George Murphy give great performances. The screenplay is well written. Roy Del Ruth did an amazing job directing this movie. I enjoyed watching this motion picture because of the remarkable characters. Broadway Rhythm is a must see. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member not my cup of tea but i can't hold that against this one. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/25/23 Full Review Read all reviews
