Watched an interesting movie tonight -- MGM's 1929 classic "The Broadway Melody," a giant leap forward in the craft of film-making.
It was the first feature length movie-musical and was the first talking film to win the Oscar for Best Picture.
Two small town performing sisters move to New York City in search of the big time. One finds success, the other less so. And, of course, this affects their relationship.
The movie makes NYC in the late 20s seem like once giant dance party.
Lots of great lines like, "It's better to star in Peoria than to starve on Broadway."
