Need to make correction
I meant Hugh Herbert, not Hugh Hefner. Lol
Ruby Keeler was wonderful
Good plot about Hugh Hefner telling relative that he needs to stay outta show business or he'll cut him off like a ripe banana. Of course he does go into show business or else we wouldn't have got the great music numbers and the fabulous "I only have eyes for you" with Dick Powell and the wonderful beautiful Ruby Keeler where we see lots of Rubys dancing. I also was fond of Joan Blondell and her "girl with an ironing board" number.
Great Nubers, Routine Plot
- disinterested spectator
This movie has some of the most ingenious song and dance numbers Busby Berkeley ever produced. One suggestive number has women in tights standing with the legs apart. Then the image is rotated so that the women are standing upside down. When they bend over and look between their legs, they look like women who are have their legs spread-eagled.
"Dames" a Good Popcorn Movie
- Mike Cloud
Corny plot. Good cast. Great songs. Not the best Busby Berkeley musical but fun. Every time Robert Osborne introduces this movie, he states that Joan Blondell was very pregnant and had to hide behind an ironing board to hide it during the laundry number. At no time in this movie did Blondell look pregnant. Her waist was rather slim.

just can't say how much. my wife & I were flipping channels when BANG!!!, there's dick powell singing i only have eyes for you. this was our wedding song. we both thought it was a 50's song, redone by art garfunkel. thanks to you we now know it was al dubin & harry warren that brought so much joy and delight to our special day.
One of the best of the genre
A fun movie. I think it's the best of the Busby Berkley movies and the many imitators that it spawned. It's got Dick Powell and Ruby Keeler and the rest of the usual suspects in the supporting cast. No thinking, just sit back and enjoy the silliness of it all.
Fun classic musical, the cast is terrific and some wonderful musical numbers. Good photography, very entertaining. A nice mix of music and comedy.
