When Busby Berkeley is put behind Judy Garland, the result is not nearly as enchanting or engaging as his usual fare. The dance numbers should never be second to anyone, let alone Judy Garland at her most earnest.
The life of three beautiful young women (Garland, Turner and Lamarr) who become Ziegfeld girls and who are tested by fame and fortune. Garland gets to sing "I'm always chasing Rainbows" and has some great musical numbers, Lana Turner sinks her teeth in her first dramatic role as a girl who gets burnt by fame, Hedy Lamarr is simply the most beautiful woman. Great male cast including young James Stewart and Dan Dailey.
