Big Broadcast of 1936 is a film broadcaster of plenty of names and considerable entertainment. It hasn't much story, but the lack won't bother much.
Go into Your Dance has much to recommend it as a lavishly produced, vigorously directed and agreeably entertaining musical picture [based on a story by Bradford Ropes]. Besides everything else it has…
