Movie Review by Jessica Film Junkie
March 7th, 2007

Yet another film about Florenz Ziegfeld (honestly the 30's and 40's were overflowing with biopics about the man). This is not one of the best, that would be 1936's 'The Great Ziegfeld', but this one boasts some serious star power.
For those unfamiliar with Flo, his famed pre-Depression Broadway shows were all about spectacle. He displayed real women like pieces of art, lovely and silent. Men in tuxedos would sing while walking down gigantic staircases filled with hundreds of women.
This movie is all spectacle and little substance. Hedy Lamarr steals the show, with her cheekbones and drama. Lana Turner tries her best, but sinks under the role that is bigger than her. And Judy Garland, well she's Judy, always sweet and betrayed.
Kinda lame, but pretty.
