A cautionary and by now amusingly sexist showbiz fairy tale (nice girls get ahead, sluts gets kicked to the curb) whose mundane back stories receive a much needed boost from periodic trips to the stage where elaborate musical numbers unfold involving women strutting up and down gilded staircases sporting outfits gaudy enough to inspire a whole generation of drag queens—my favourite was Lana Turner dressed as a tropical reef with giant plastic fish bobbling off her coral headdress. It’s all fluff and icing of course despite some racy sexual innuendo and Jimmy Stewart’s ham-fisted performance as Turner’s labile truck driver boyfriend, but the choreographed numbers are fun to watch and Garland’s soulful rendition of “I’m Always Chasing Rainbows” can still inspire.

Lavish musical with Hedy Lamarr, Lana Turner and Judy Garland. Three different women, three different path. Good.

Not the greatest plot in the world. Interesting that they even manage to get in a reference to Hedy Lamarr in one of the songs. This must have been about the time she co-invented spread spectrum technology.
