Editors Note
Note Fading movie musical star Tony Hunter, down and out in Hollywood, decides to try his luck on the Broadway stage. Unfortunately, the simple hoofer discovers that a pretentious director has control of the project, and that instead of good humor, happy songs and a tapping chorus line, there'll be lengthy speeches, heavy drama and lots of deep soul-searching. Even worse, Tony's expected to dance with a classical ballerina! Thanks to the massive egos of everyone involved, the play, to no one's surprise, lays an egg. But now Tony takes charge, and he's out to prove the show must go on -- his way! Some of the dazzling Astaire dance numbers include "Triplets," "Girl Hunt," "Dancing in the Dark" and "That's Entertainment."
USA Today "...Astaire called it his favorite film..." 10/19/1994 p.10D
Entertainment Weekly "...Hollywood's last great musical tribute to Broadway....Deliriously colorful..." -- Rating: A 05/12/1995 pp.68-70
Chicago Sun-Times "THE BAND WAGON has a note of melancholy along with its smiles." 03/27/2005 p.3
Sight and Sound "Fred Astaire is very amusing....Former stage designer Minnelli nails every theatreland joke..." 07/01/2005 p.82
