Film Notes

“This is a great show foe the money. And there’s something in it for everybody. Like Shakespeare? Well, You’ll find Jack Gilbert and Norma Shearer as Romeo and Juliet. Like low-brow slapstick? Well, there are Laurel and Hardy in a comedy act as low as they come. Like big musical numbers with glorified gals singing and dancing? All right, there’s the hit, Singing in the Rain, and many breath-taking girl numbers. […] There are bad spots, but it is, to date, the best of its kind and great entertainment. All Talkie”. (Photoplay, Sept., 1929)
