This is NOT a bad film. It's a 1929 musical that won an Oscar for best
film as well as nominations for direction (Harry Beaumont) and lead
actress, Bessie Love. It was the number ONE hit of 1929. Central to
this film is Love's great performance as Hank Mahoney, the older sister
in a musical act trying to make it on Broadway. The plot is pretty
sophisticated for 1929. Bessie Love is in love with a singer (Charles
King) who falls for younger sister, gorgeous Anita Page. Rather than
hurt her sister, Page starts running around with a scummy playboy
The truth comes out and Love backs off in a heart-breaking scene,
giving up King and the act, and clears the way for Page and King. Two
great songs: The Broadway Melody and You Were Meant for Me, both nicely
done by Charles King. Love and Page are also fun in The Boy Friend
song, in which Bessie Love gets to cut loose and dance in a
full-fledged number. Another song, The Wedding of the Painted Dolls, is
truly bizarre, and possibly the most over produced musical number
you'll EVER see! But I like the music.
Yes, yes, you've seen all this before, but remember this is a 1929
talkie. The opening number is wonderful, with Charles King introducing
The Broadway Melody. That's James Gleason as the music publisher. And
keep your eyes on Rosie (no idea who played her) with her swinging
beads. Blanche Payson plays "the big woman" in charge of the dressing
room, who has a terrific scene with the gay designer (Drew Demorest).
Mary Doran, Eddie Kane, Ray Cooke, and Jed Prouty have roles and that's
composer Nacio Herb Brown at the piano. I love this film! I love the
music. Bessie Love is SO GOOD in this film, you wonder why her talkie
career didn't go better. Anita Page is also good and has a couple of
terrific dramatic scenes. Charles King is a good singer but his acting
was hammy. The three stars also appeared in Hollywood Revue of 1929.
And yes, Bessie Love had been in films since the teens and was already
a veteran of 15 years when she made this film. Catch her in Intolerance
and The Lost World.
