      Critics Consensus

      Although technological limitations keep the Fox Movietone Follies from being as viscerally fun as a real stage show, this glitzy musical still delights.

      Mae Tinee Chicago Tribune As a step forward in the march of sound cinema the film deserves respectful consideration. Rated: 3/4 Mar 6, 2021 Full Review Mordaunt Hall New York Times Some of the singing is not as effective as one might hope for, due perhaps to the theatre's reproducing device, but it is a picture that has been produced with a pleasing sense of humor and with no little photographic skill. Mar 6, 2021 Full Review Frank G. Evans Fort Worth Star-Telegram/ Some parts are well screened. A little less singing, thought by many to be excessive in a number of late "talkies," probably would make it a better show. Mar 6, 2021 Full Review Hugh Castle Close Up For the life of me I cannot see why people should pay to see a thing like this when they can see a first-class revue on the stage, even aside from the novelty value of the cinema show. Mar 6, 2021 Full Review Jack Moffitt Kansas City Star This production has the usual backstage love story which manages to be amusing despite the fact it contains no impressive acting and no originality. An "Undersea Ballet" permits the use of technicolor to a spectacle sequence. Mar 6, 2021 Full Review Donald Kirkley Baltimore Sun The producers of this entertainment have challenged comparison with the great Broadway revues and must take the consequences.
