Review by Poppy Mae Bee
Fabulous dance routines but the black face Mr. Bojangles number is so racist and ugly I had to turn it off. This is a Criterion choice and the special additions has a professor breaking down and critiquing that particular scene. Even during the time it was made there was not justification for the blatant ignorance.
Yet another movie I will not be able to watch again,, there seems to be many. Even though Ginger and Fred are divine in most of their numbers - the finale, which I missed is supposed to be quite something, the film leaves a bad taste in my mouth.
