Synopsis

#123movies #fmovies #putlocker #gomovies #solarmovie #soap2day Watch Full Movie Online Free – Terry Randall, rich society beauty, has decided to see if she can break into the Broadway theatre scene without her family connections. She goes to live in a theatrical boarding house and finds her life caught up with those of the other inmates and the ever-present disappointment that theatrical hopefuls must live with. Her smart-mouth roommate, Jean, is approached by a powerful producer for more than just a role. And Terry’s father has decided to give her career the shove by backing a production for her to star in, in which she’s sure to flop. But his machinations hurt more than just Terry.
Plot: The ups and downs in the lives and careers of a group of ambitious young actresses and show girls from disparate backgrounds brought together in a theatrical hostel. Centres particularly on the conflict and growing friendship between Terry Randall, a rich girl confident in her talent and ability to make it to the top on the stage, and Jean Maitland, a world weary and cynical trouper who has taken the hard knocks of the ruthless and over-populated world of the Broadway apprentice.

The calla lilies are blooming…
Watch this movie, *any way* you can.

Seriously, you won’t be disappointed.

It’s a brilliant way to spend a couple of hours: where else would you get an all-star cast that would make your jaw drop today (Katharine Hepburn, Ginger Rogers, Lucille Ball, Eve Arden, Ann Miller etc. etc.), and a clever, witty script played to the hilt by the astounding cast?

The story is fairly simple: Terry Randall (Hepburn) moves into the Footlights Club to begin her career as an actress. Viewed as an odd cookie by the rest of the girls, her room-mate Jean (Rogers) especially, she starts to win them over until she wins the part belonging to Kaye (Andrea Leeds). Not wins, so much as given. It takes a tragedy to turn Terry into the actress she could be, and the friend she eventually becomes as she remains in the Footlights Club.

This film benefits from a truly amazing cast: Hepburn is glorious as Terry, an independent, in-your-face girl from the upper class, unsure why she’s not liked by her new friends as she blithely (and unknowingly) talks down to them; but fiercely loyal and protective of them nonetheless. Witness Terry’s outburst in Powell’s office, or the way she puts Jean, much the worse for wine, to bed. Hepburn is truly great in her emotional scenes, when she is called to perform on stage despite the revelation she’s received just beforehand.

Hepburn alone doesn’t make the movie though (as she eventually does in lesser vehicles with less worthy co-stars). Ginger Rogers as Jean is a breath of fresh air. She’s quirky, charming, and just generally appealing in her role, playing Jean with a wonderful confidence that bodes well for the character. You warm to Jean immediately. I love Rogers’ drunken scenes with Menjou–ditzy yet sweet.

The supporting cast is fantastic as well, Lucille Ball never missing a chance to steal a scene or make a quip, Eve Arden fast on her heels. Andrea Leeds overacts a little, I think, but is generally good in her demanding role as Kaye–she does an excellent job on the staircase towards the end of the movie.

Absolutely A+. Everything Hollywood should be, was, and now isn’t.

Girls aloud
I enjoyed this vintage Hollywood tragi-comedy the more it went on. Not knowing the story in advance, I thought I was in for ninety minutes of fast-talking, wise-cracking comedy especially with Ginger Rogers and Katherine Hepburn in the lead parts and introductory scenes of young, good-looking women living cheek-by-jowl in a dingy, overcrowded boarding house for actresses, all with the same dream of either snagging a millionaire nice-guy for a husband or getting discovered for a big part by the manager of a talent agency. It’s only as the movie progresses that you realise that some of the girls are close to starving or suffering psychologically the latter culminating in a shocking incident which becomes the fulcrum of the film and inspires its main message as to just how hard it is to get on in acting, especially if you’re a woman.

Rogers and Hepburn get exactly the parts you’d expect them to, the former as the street-smart, cynical girl prepared to go along for the ride even if it means welcoming the dubious charms of the playboy manager who’ll wine and dine her and get her a starring part in a new play, the latter as the undercover, terribly posh rich girl, slumming it to achieve her twin-dreams of independence from her super-rich daddy and stardom on the stage. They’re both just as good as you’d expect them to be, but I enjoyed just as much the performances of their supporting cast, some of whom, like a very young Ann Miller and Lucille Ball who went onto real-life stardom and others who obviously didn’t. The rapid-fire repartee between them all in the early scenes, apparently much of it improvised, is as amusing as it’s authentic-sounding. There’s barely a male in sight and those that are, are mainly men-on-the-make or dumb klutzes.

However it’s the introduction of the tragic heroine, Andrea Leeds as the desperate, beaten-down Kaye which gives the film its bathos and changes its tone completely. Despite her fellow-boarders best efforts we see her edge closer to her shocking demise in a memorable scene which anticipates “Sunset Boulevard” by over 10 years.

On the debit side, Adolphe Menjou seems miscast as the lecherous casting-couch manager and scenes where Hepburn’s character is told she is only good for washing dishes and the only black actor we see is a young shoeshine boy betray some of the social norms of the day.

Nevertheless, this was an excellent behind-the-scenes portrayal of just what it takes for women to get on in a man’s world, especially in the glass-ceiling world of theatre.
