Everybody Sing

Everybody sings in this highly successful departure from the stereotyped filmusical. The production is a combination of straight comedy, balanced with some tuneful song interpolations. Fanny Brice scores heavily with her inimitable impersonations. Others profit equally, however, and the diminutive Judy Garland takes a long leap forward to stardom.

Story recounts the weird behavior of a theatrical family headed by Reginald Owen as an exasperated dramatist and Billie Burke, temperamental stage star. The children are Lynne Carver and Garland, who is expelled from boarding school because she insists on singing Mendelssohn to swingtime. Allan Jones is the family chef; Brice, the maid, and Reginald Gardiner is Burke’s leading man in a play sooon to be produced.

These characters are tossed about in some amusing situations at home, in a night club and backstage of a theatre.
