Broadway ★★★½

Fun Facts:

1. Produced as an all-talkie, it has inventive camera work that contrasts considerably against other, mostly static, musicals of the 1928-30 period. Director Pál Fejös developed a special crane capable of moving the extremely cumbersome camera at 600' per minute.

2. This stars Glenn Tryon (Lonesome) and Merna Kennedy (Charlie Chaplin’s Circus) in a love triangle with Robert Ellis.

3.  Pál Fejös became a successful anthropologist after his directorial career. Who would have thunk it?
