Fox's all-black musical answer to MGM's Cabin in the Sky. No Minnelli this time, so no contest, especially as the wispy plot - one of those up-down romances that span 25 years - serves chiefly to string together a revue collection of items matching the various periods. With those stars let loose on classic songs, and the Nicholas Brothers providing a stunning tap dancing finale, who's complaining? Often quite imaginatively staged, the numbers are strikingly well shot by Leon Shamroy.
