Movie Review by Movie Addict
April 11th, 2008

Flaming stars burn brightly, then out.

Oh, to be a Ziegfield girl. $75 a week and the chance to make it to the moon. But, sometimes that shooting star hits the ground with a thud.

Three beautiful women - The fantastic Hedy Lamarr, Judy Garland (A Star Is Born, Judgment at Nuremberg), and Lana Turner (Peyton Place) - are members of the troupe. Their stories off-stage are told interspersed with Garland's beautiful singing and Busby Berkeley's (Gold Diggers of 1935, Gold Diggers of 1937, Varsity Show) outstanding choreography.

The costuming was magnificent, but wasted in a BW production.

It is the drama off stage that really makes the film interesting as Lamarr and her violinist husband have a falling out over her taking the job while he is unemployed, Garland is trying to make it big and help her Vaudevillian father, and Turner just wants to live the life of glamor, not noticing that her boyfriend (James Stewart) is ruining his life as she is ruining hers, but for different reasons.

An interesting look at life in the city during the 20's.
