Story of vaudeville troupers before and during the First World War [from an original story by Howard Emmett Rogers] is obvious, naive and sentimental. It’s also genuine and affectionate and lively.

Picture’s title, of course, is taken from one of the song numbers, the oldie ‘For Me and My Gal’. The tune that brings Judy Garland and Gene Kelly together, first as vaudeville team and ultimately as a romance, it gets a sock presentation in a song-and-dance routine by them and is used thereafter as a theme.

Garland is a knockout as the warm-hearted young song-and-dance girl, selling a number of the songs persuasively, getting by neatly in the hoofing routines with Kelly, and giving a tender, affecting dramatic performance. Kelly gives a vividly drawn portrayal of the song-and-dance man and imperfect hero.
