Editorial Reviews

Mickey Rooney and Judy Garland were not only great friends from the get-go, but MGM lost no time in throwing the childhood stars together on the screen to the gushing delight of moviegoers. This collection of four treasures includes Babes in Arms (Charles Winninger. 1939/93 min.), Strike up the Band (Paul Whiteman. 1940/120 min.), Babes on Broadway (Fay Binter. 1941/118 min.) and Girl Crazy (June Allyson, Nancy Walker. 1943/99 min.). 5 DVDs. B&w/NR/fullscreen.

I highly recommend this Rooney/Garland DVD set.
Diane
Each dvd comes with loads of special features- commentaries, interviews, lots more (two pages of extras per film), and even old newsreel footage.
Audrey Horne
The film also features the Oscar-nominated song "Our Love Affair" and a rousing finale with the Gershwins' title tune.

This is the long awaited boxed set of four Mickey Rooney and Judy Garland musicals that includes a fifth bonus disc. The contents are as follows as described by a press release from Warner Home Video:

Babes in Arms (1939)
This is the first film the two did together and was adapted from the 1937 Rodgers and Hart Broadway hit of the same name. Busby Berkeley directed the film and also did the choreography. This film is being shown as it was in its initial release in 1939, complete with the minstrel numbers that might seem offensive today and a sequence involving the impersonation of FDR and Eleanor Roosevelt that was cut shortly after FDR's death since MGM didn't want to appear disrespectful under the circumstances. The plot is simple - Rooney plays a kid trying to prove his musical talent and therefore decides to put on a show. Garland plays another talented youngster who decides to help him do it.
DVD Special Features:
Introduction by Mickey Rooney
Commentary by historian John Fricke
Vintage Our Gang short Duel Personalities
Classic cartoon The Mad Maestro
1939 Newsreel with Mickey and Judy
Audio-only bonuses:
Leo Is on the Air radio promo
3 different radio shows with Rooney and Garland
Theatrical Trailer

Strike up the Band (1940)
This one has more of a plot than the first, plus some great music. Rooney plays self-involved musician Jimmy Conners who impresses bandleader Paul Whiteman so much that he offers him a job in New York City. However, a friend's medical emergency makes Rooney choose between his own plans and his friend's health, and he chooses his friend in the end. Rooney's character now has to come up with a way to replace the travel money.

So often, it seems to me, Judy Garland dvd box-sets raise the standard of excellence for all manufacturers of DVDs to aspire to. This newest Judy-Mickey collection is no exception, it is a stunningly satisfying experience to read the 48 page (hardback) guide, and the very generous collection of 20 high-quality large postcards in the portfolio binder takes you back almost 70 years to when these films were made.
The hardback book includes reproductions of what seem to be newspaper ads, lobby cards, miniature poster reproductions along with John Fricke's meticulous research and unparallaled knowledge of all-things-Garland lovingly stamped all over this collection before you even pop in the first DVD to watch. The 5th bonus DVD features more than 20 Garland performances spanning 1938 through 1954 as well as 10 trailers for the Garland-Rooney film collaborations & TCM's Robert Osbourne hosting his 'Private Screenings' interview with Rooney.
It just doesn't get any better for vintage film collectors, in terms of value and content. It's a total explosion for the senses to unwrap this package and take it all in; the extraordinary art design, layout, and such a brilliantly realized concept- from the fonts used; to the glossy, higher-quality paper than one would expect in the 'Bonus DVD & Guide' book, this is a first class product all-around that deserves to be a huge success.
Turner Entertainment Co./Warner Home Video and Mr. Fricke have all outdone themselves with this release. Easily the best value of any box-set DVD I have purchased in more than a year, which should be used as a blueprint for any (or every!) upcoming DVD release, which so often don't include so much as an insert.
Outstanding!

Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Mickey Rooney and Judy Garland are one of the best teams in movie history ranking with Laurel and Hardy, Irene Dunne and Cary Grant, and Doris Day and Rock Hudson in terms of chemistry. Each were bursting with talent both musical and theatrical, so their films together jumped from the screen. Here are their four most popular and profitable ventures featuring excellent musical scores and simple stories about show business.

Babes in Arms is notable as the first smash hit Garland and Rooney teaming. It was adapted from a stage play for the screen, and probably lost some appeal in the transition. What stands is an okay film with a great cast and some interesting musical numbers. A group of vaudevillians led by Joe Moran (Charles Winninger) are planning a big comeback to the stage, although vaudeville is losing its audience. Their kids want to help, but are brushed away. Moran's son Mickey (Mickey Rooney) brings the kids together to perform their own show and to prove to the adults that they can hold their own on a stage. Mickey's girl Patsy (Judy Garland) intends to play the lead, but Mickey thinks "Baby Rosalie" (June Preisser) might draw a bigger audience. And they have to battle Mrs. Steele (Margaret Hamilton) who wants to put them all into school.

With lots of notable songs like "Good Morning," in its best form here with the jazz stylings of Garland's vocals and Rooney's piano playing, it's the catchiest song of the film. Most of the others are medleys with good and bad parts. Betty Jaynes and Douglas McPhail sing a few songs in their operatic style, which will be less appealing to mass audiences. The blackface routine might offend some audiences today, but it is really a tribute to the minstrel shows that Mickey's father started his career in.
