Three sentence movie reviews: The Band Wagon

 In All (-ish), Three Sentence Movie Reviews

While the setup of this movie was similar to Singin’ in the Rain, the story and the songs didn’t gel like they perhaps should have and most of the movie fell flat for me. The “Dancing in the Dark” sequence was great, and I enjoyed the excesses of Jack Buchanan as pretentious director Jeffery Cordova. Some of the numbers were terrible such as “Louisiana Hayride”* and “Triplets” which was fascinating in it’s creepy earworm structure.

Cost: free from library
Where watched: at home, part of Filmspotting’s Minnelli Marathon

*Too bad, because Nannette Fabray was great.

    Interesting that it had a similar structure, or at least story line to SITR. That is such a classic and this one, likely due to the enh musical numbers, is completely unknown to me. Yay for a directorial movie watching marathon!
