The Big Broadcast (1932)



Reviews and Comments

This film, a featherweight musical with lots of music and comedy and very little plot, is quite the nostalgia trip. This is essentially an excuse to feature Bing Crosby's crooning, George Burns and Gracie Allen's comedy, and a host of jazz performances, including Cab Calloway's hit Minnie the Moocher. The film brings the entertainment scene of the early thirties to rich life and may be a fascinating curiosity for modern audiences with a love for cultural history.
