Editorial Reviews

A remake of 1929's The Broadway Melody, Two Girls on Broadway follows the heart-tugging adventures of a dancer who loses both her shot at the big time and her stage-partner fiance? to her talented kid sister. The story may have been a bit familiar, but the actress playing the kid sister was not. Lana Turner was film land's newest sensation, the movie magazines' hot seller, the Blonde Bonfire breathlessly advertised as "Hollywood's glamour-plus girl." With old pros Joan Blondell and George Murphy playing the other sides of the show-biz triangle and production numbers set to catchy tunes, Two Girls on Broadway proved to be a fine vehicle for Turner, showcasing the new star's graceful dancing and unmistakable screen charisma.

When sold by Amazon.com, this product will be manufactured on demand using DVD-R recordable media. Amazon.com's standard return policy will apply.

i loved this movie. it was cute and funny with the madcap 'smart alecky american' acting of the thirties in good evidence. and it was touching, with a selfless idealism that you never see in stories nowadays, because self actualization is too highly prized over love of neighbor now.

the interesting thing for me was to see how they could tell a story and have very strong conflict with three people who love each other dearly and who act with blameless integrity toward each other. they all strive to do the right thing for each other and yet one of them gets unbelievably screwed. joan blondell gets to exhibit a selfless heroism that won't even allow anyone else to know the extent of her sacrifice. because if lana turner knew, her own nobility would force her to throw away everyone's happiness in order to 'do the right thing' by her sister. a story of how even goodness and love can cause immense suffering... and how a sister's love is willing to pay any price.

I recently purchased a copy of this DVD. Upon playing it I found that instead of Two Girls on Broadway, the film was actually the
similarly titled Two Tickets to Broadway. The in-lay card and the DVD itself are both titled Two Girls on Broadway. There has
obviously been a mistake at Warner Archive and I am wondering if anyone else has experienced this.
I have bought hundreds of DVDs but this is the first time this has happened.
The 4 stars are for Two Tickets to Broadway which I really enjoyed in any case - it's probably a better film.
However if I decide to try and get another copy of Two Girls on Broadway, will I still encounter the same problem?

It's a cute, amusing movie, if predictable. Lana Turner is so young and beautiful -- and a pretty talented dancer! Joan Blondell is sweet and affecting. The real problem is the lack of chemistry between George Murphy's character and Turner's; honestly, I liked her better with the "cad." Definitely not an "essential," but pretty good.

A remake of the landmark MGM talkie "Broadway Melody of 1929", 1940's TWO GIRLS ON BROADWAY pairs up Lana Turner and Joan Blondell (in her first film for Metro) as the 'girls' of the title. This was the movie that finally established Lana Turner as one of the studio's hottest commodities. After supporting roles in several films, she'd been built up the year before in two well-received movies ("These Glamour Girls" and "Dancing Co-Ed"), but after the rapturous reception for TWO GIRLS, MGM realised that she had made that rare, almost seamless transition to leading lady.

The story revolves around two sisters, Molly (Blondell) and Pat Mahoney (Turner), who travel to New York from far-flung Nebraska when Molly's fiancee Eddie Kerns (George Murphy) lands a plum dancing job on Broadway, and arranges for Molly and her 'kid sister' to join the act. The 'kid' turns out to be fully grown and producers decide to dump Molly in lieu of her bombshell baby sister! For every success story, Broadway is littered with a million broken dreams, and it's not long until Pat not only dances away with Molly's career, but also with Eddie.

This sudsy back-stager is filled with wonderful dance numbers and sparkling performances. It's odd now to look back and see how MGM initially marketed Lana Turner as a dancing star (pretty soon she'd dump the dance shoes for straight-up comedy and dramatic roles), but she is quite marvellous partnering George Murphy in the elaborate production number "My Wonderful One, Let's Dance". No longer a "B" player, Turner's next film assignment would be her biggest to date - the role of alcoholic showgirl Sheila Regan in "Ziegfeld Girl".

The Warner Archive disc of TWO GIRLS ON BROADWAY has no extras aside from the obligatory trailer. Recommended for Lana fans.
