The 1951 Warner Brothers release, "Lullaby of Broadway" was a big success at the box-office. Warners had taken the hit song from one of their big 1930's extravaganzas, dressed it all in pretty technicolor, given it a typical back-stage storyline and filled it with a lot of talented and gifted performers. It was a surefire recipe for success and it succeeded admirably.
From the opening frames when star Doris Day, donned in a tux, ala Eleanor Powell, sings and dances her way delightfully through Cole Porter's "Just One of Those Things", the audience is whisked away on a melodic journey. The songs come fast and furious thereby capably keeping the audience from realizing they'd seen the story done before and that the chemistry between Miss Day and co-star Gene Nelson is more like that between a brother and a sister than two sweethearts.
Doris Day arrives in America to visit her mother who she has been led to believe is a great American star. The plot deals with the efforts of those around her in preventing her from realizing the truth. In the meantime Doris meets talented dancer Nelson, they fall in love, and by the end of the picture Day is rendering the ultimate version of the title tune in a lavish number that'll leave a smile on everyones' face.
After only three years of making films, Doris Day easily proves why her rise to superstardom was accompished so quickly. While there is little to challenge her thespian skills, she makes the most of the opportunities presented and is completely winning and natural. It's during the musical sequences that she shows why she was Warner Brothers best musical asset in the late 40's and early 50's. No one else could come close.
Gene Nelson is a very talented and athletic dancer.

C'mon along and join Doris Day and a top supporting cast in a high-stepping musical feast - the infectious LULLABY OF BROADWAY!

Melinda Howard (Doris Day) a young up-and-coming musical star, has just arrived back in New York, totally unaware that her mother Jessica (Gladys George), once the biggest star on Broadway, is now singing in a dingy tavern. The mansion which Jessica used to own has now been taken over by a rich brewery magnate and his wife (S.Z. Sakall and Florence Bates).

Old-time vaudevilians Lefty and Gloria (Billy DeWolfe and Anne Triola), now the butler and maid of the house, take Melinda under their wing and uphold the ruse that Jessica is just 'out of town'...

Complications arise when Melinda finds herself on the cusp of Broadway fame, just as Jessica's cover is blown! Gene Nelson co-stars as the brash and confident dancer who falls in love with Melinda.

Doris Day as usual gives her all in the lead role. Gladys George was a perfect casting choice for Melinda's washed-up alcoholic mother and Florence Bates is fun in one of her trademark 'society matron' roles. Billy DeWolfe, S.Z. Sakall and Gene Nelson would go on to co-star with Doris Day again in the successful TEA FOR TWO (both movies were made and released in the same year and were big box office drawcards for Warners).

A top Hollywood musical.

I've watched the video about 4 or 5 times and I have come to the conclusion that the film is about one of the best early Doris Day films in existence. The dancing, the singing and the cute story are but a few of the wonderful things the film has to offer. The supporting cast, especially S.Z. Sakall, who was a great Viennese actor in early 1930s, provides one of the best examples of character acting in movie musical history. Florence Bates and Anne Triola, who teams with Billy DeWolfe, are excellent in their roles, too. You would be foolish to pass this one up!

Doris Day is enchanting as Melinda Howard, in this 1950s classic. The songs will have you're toes tapping! This movie is touching, romantic, funny, and most of all entertaining. It is sure to delight both young and old alike. If you are fan of Doris Day, or even if you're not, Lullaby of Broadway, is a must for any movie collection!!!

completely enjoyable with my favorite version of 'Zing! Went the Strings of My Heart' sung and danced by Gene Nelson. If I didn't own it already, I'd buy it again.

I've watched this Musical so many times and still get a great joy in watching it, it's so breath-taking with the songs, dance's and story line. I've just bought this video, and I would recommend it to anyone. Doris Day is my favourite actress of all time, and she teams well with Gene Nelson (who is a fantastic dancer).

She's a singer and a tap-dancer. Doris Day does it all. She is an entertainer aboard a cruise ship. She's come back to the United States to visit her mother. Her mother is also a singer, but in a nightclub. What Doris does not know, her mother no longer has the New York house and she is no longer a well-known Broadway star. She is too ashamed to see her daughter the way her life has turned. Very nice musical! Tunes include: "Lullaby of Broadway", "In a Shanty In Old Shanty Town", "Zing! Went the Strings of My Heart", "Somebody Loves Me", "I Love The Way You Say Goodnight".
Also in the cast: Billy DeWolfe (one of Doris' closest friends), Gladys George, Florence Bates and Anne Triola.
Best line: Doris gives Gene Nelson a gift. She says that there is a message on there for you. It's a 1949 penny that says atop, "In God We Trust".
Awesome mechanical dolls number.
