Reviews
ReviewSource Variety
Review Broadway Melody, the first screen musical, tells of a vaudeville sister team coming in from the middle west, with the older girl engaged to a song-and-dance boy in a Broadway revue. Latter goes for the kid sister, now grown up, who starts playing with one of the show's backers to stand off the boy and spare the blow to her sister, despite that she, too, is in love with her prospective brother-in-law...In between are the troubles of the femme team making the revue grade...Both girls, Bessie Love as the elder sister and Anita Page as the youngster, are great in their respective climaxes, especially Love. Charlie King looks as good as he plays and plants comedy lines as they should be delivered. Other cast support is up to the mark with the exception of Kenneth Thomson, as the chaser, who plays too slow and doesn't convince...Excellent bits of sound workmanship are that of camera and mike following Page and the heavy along the dance floor to pick up their conversation as they glide.
