George White's Scandals was a Broadway sensation, a series of revues bursting with comedy, music and long-stemmed American beauties. George White's Scandals the movie celebrates that tradition with knockabout comic Joan Davis and song-and-joke man Jack Haley playing Scandals stars and lovebirds separated by Haley's sourpuss sis (Margaret Hamilton, the Wicked Witch to Haley's Tin Man in The Wizard of Oz). They provide the zaniness, Gene Krupa and his band keep everyone in the swing, organ virtuoso Ethel Smith provides a rousing rendition of the Gershwins' Liza and among the long-stemmed beauties is tap-dancing Bettejane Greer, soon to be film noir siren Jane Greer.

me laugh. George White's Scandals is a silly little movie with a
very thin plot, but it has a lot to offer. Aside from the zany
comedic talents of Joan Davis, there are several nice musical numbers,
including "Life Is Just A Bowl Of Cherries" and "Liza" with lots of
singing, dancing and beautiful chorus girls. Also on hand are
Gene Krupa on drums, Ethel Smith on the organ and a wonderful and
rare vocal performance from Rose Murphy at the piano. The likeable
Jack Haley (the Tin Man from OZ) co-stars as Joan's fiancee.
However, his sour-puss spinster sister, Margaret Hamilton (the Wicked
Witch of OZ) is determined to block any plans of marriage with sinister
and focused determination. During one of the funny musical numbers,
Cary Grant, Ginger Rogers and John Wayne briefly appear in film clips.
Taste is subjective, so I don't know how you will react to this film.
I can only give you my opinion and I give it 4 stars!
bonus: The black and white print sparkles.
