As Phil Silvers would say, "Glad to see ya!". Well, I'm glad to see this film on DVD! Finally, finally - after waiting years and years. It's nice to have this film (and it's "twin", Wabash Avenue) out on official DVD. There's plenty of bootlegs of this film (and many other Betty Grable films) running around out there - buyer beware!. Neither Coney Island or Wabash Avenue have ever been available on VHS or DVD. Both films are part of the "bare bones" Fox Cinema Archives collection - no chapters, no fancy inserts, no extras of any kind. Just the movie. I have had a bad, taped from TV bootleg of this movie for years because it never was available. Finally Fox has smartened up and realized that there is a market for this type of film, after all - look at how many badly made bootlegs there are out there. I just think that Betty deserves fancier packaging.

The only thing I don't like about this film is that George Montgomery's singing voice (obviously dubbed) doesn't match his speaking voice. Good thing that it's only for a few lines in one song - ouch!

If you love the 1940's musical, the Fox Technicolor and Betty Grable, then "Coney Island" is for you. This is a terrific color print on DVD. There are some wonderful old fashion tunes, beautiful costumes and Betty at her best. There is nothing like these great old musicals.

Not great cinema, but a heck of a lot of fun to watch. The print is wonderful . . . sharp, colorful and clean. The sound is so good that it almost sounds like stereo. Coney Island is typical 1940s 20th Century Fox fare but Betty Grable is major joy to watch, especially in technicolor. No wonder she was so popular. If you like the genre, if you are a fan of Grable, or if you just enjoy a good time, this one's for you.

I saw all her movies when a kid, and I enjoyed watching them again. Also, the Technicolor is beautiful. Music great.

Story line is a young guy (George Montgomery) looks up an old pal (Phil Silvers) who is working a stall at Coney Island and convinces him to become his partner. Along the way he runs into another old pal (Cesar Romero) who cheated him and he wants his money. Situation is complicated by a singer (Betty Grable) who works for Romero...lots of singing and dancing,,,back stabbing by both men and eventually all is well.......pretty good story and music from the era......

Coney Island (1943) is perhaps Betty Grable's best musical.

When you take wonderful musical numbers, add a great cast and fill
the screen with Technicolor, the result is pure entertainment.
Betty is joined by George Montgomery, Cesar Romero, Phil Silvers
and Charles Winninger.

Songs include: Beautiful Coney Island, Pretty Baby, Take It From There,
Who Threw The Overalls In Mrs. Murphy's Chowder?,
Put Your Arms Around Me Honey, Cuddle Up A Little Closer,
Miss Lulu From Louisville and many more.

In 1950, Coney Island was re-made, with Betty Grable, as Wabash Avenue.
The story is almost the same scene by scene, but the songs and the
supporting cast was changed. The only other star I can think of
that re-made a film was Clark Gable with Red Dust (1932)
and Mogambo (1953). That's star power!

Coney Island and Sweet Rosie O'Grady made Betty Grable the number one box office attraction of 1943.

Coney Island showcases the girl-next-door-set-to-music persona that made her such a favorite with movie audiences - and the GI's favourite pin-up girl of WW2. She gives the impression here of enjoying every moment of what she is doing to entertain those watching her on screen.

Grable remade the film as the 1950 release Wabash Avnue, and opinion can be divided on which is the better version.

Coney Island has the most well-known tunes, and is perhaps more light hearted and spectacular. Helen Rose created Grable's terrific wardrobe.

Musical highlights include the Wintertime number, the Danger in the Dance segment and Grable reprising Take It From There throughtout the movie.
