Not so bad in my opinion
15 March 2008 | by medwardb1976See all my reviews

Everyone is entitled to their opinion and my opinion of this film differs from the review above. I saw this film at the 2001 Cinecon exhibition and I thought the movie was FUN. Belle Baker was terrific in her "performance" pieces and it's a shame she didn't leave more of a legacy as did Fanny Brice, who I think performed in a similar vein. Of course the plot was thin and sappy, but this was true of most early movie musicals (and Broadway ones too). Eve Arden as a 1920's flapper vamp is hilarious, though unintentionally so. Same goes for the young Ralph Graves, Belle's obvious boy-toy, who is always calling her "Mama." One can't really blame him for stepping out with the younger woman who is about a generation younger than "Mama." I also enjoyed the fact that one gets to have a feel for vaudeville show sketches back then through this film, as well as its overall 1920's ambiance. So all in all is it a great film? No. But is it historic and entertaining? I think so.
