Have You Heard About... Broadway Rhythm

… a song called “Solid Potato Salad”? This cute song is in the movie Broadway Rhythm, sung by Aggie, Maggie and Elmira, better known as the Ross Sisters, three sisters who do an amazing contortionist act in the film. This golden oldie features George Murphy (before he became a U.S. Senator), Ginny Sims, Gloria De Haven, the always wonderful Charles Winninger, and the delightfully funny talents of Nancy Walker, Ben Blue, Kenny Bowers and Eddie ’Rochester’ Anderson. Tommy Dorsey and his band provide the music.

There’s not really a plot in this MGM World War II escapism musical. This movie is about the wonderful music, such as “All the Things You Are,” “Somebody Loves Me” – sung by the fabulous Lena Horne – “Irresistible You” and many others.

The highlight in this film is when Nancy Walker, Tommy Dorsey and Ben Blue do a fantastic musical number called “Milkman, Keep Those Bottles Quiet.”

You won’t be disappointed if you check out this great DVD. It’s one of the classics from 1944.
