Flirtation Walk

Flirtation Walk is bright and diverting entertainment in which the musical sequences [dance numbers directed by Bobby Connolly, music and lyrics by Allie Wrubel and Mort Dixon] are logically worked in , albeit with the usual Hollywood flair for exaggeration. Background of West Point allows the picture to possess some snappy drill and brass-button stuff. Deft direction of Frank Borzage gives the production the tempo and zing that stamps it swell amusement.

Dick Powell, in his plebe year at the Point, plays the situations for excellent natural comedy. Ruby Keeler does not dance. She has a lot to do and does it with considerable assurance. Ross Alexander as Powell’s roommate will be liked, a personable young man with a knack for light comedy and horseplay.

Laughs and drama of the story are derived from the interplay of officer-private class distinctions and military discipline. The quiet competence of John Eldredge’s performance as the disappointed suitor rates a few merit stripes.
