A naughty, gaudy, bawdy movie musical landmark.

Splashy Hollywood does splashy Broadway in this behind-the-scenes of a show musical. The leading lady is, as many times before, suddenly unavailable and the understudy chorus line girl is thrust into the limelight. Last minute preparations for opening night with the new star turn the entire production on its ear before the big premiere. Many memorable tunes including: “Forty-Second Street,” “Young and Healthy,” “You're Getting To Be A Habit With Me” and “Shuffle Off To Buffalo.”

Critic Reviews:

  • " It's the cast, the banter and the backstage at-a-musical-revue-in-rehearsal milieu that keep this picture fresh. " – Roger Moore (Movie Nation)
  • " A deliciously funny musical; racy and light years ahead of its time. " – Chris Laverty (Clothes on Film)
  • " The liveliest and one of the most tuneful screen musical comedies that has come out of Hollywood. " – Mordaunt Hall (New York Times)
