GREAT (another) Rooney/Garland/Busby Berkeley celebration of 40's American live theater show biz. This is from 1941 with Judy 19 years old and Mickey 21.
The lengthy (8 minutes) 'Hoedown' - the country's gone hoedown, putting it's foot down. kicking it's heels - was particularly entertaining.
Also fun to see Mickey do a full dress/hat Carmen Miranda piece.
The elaborately staged 'black face' routine at the end was terrific - but may have become a bit controversial in later years.
This was the third of the Mickey Rooney & Judy Garland collection I've seen. All have been great. Fourth and last up next - Girl Crazy. KCLS has all four - highly recommended!
