Babes In Arms

" Judy's the Babe -- In Mickey's Arms "

-- Synopsis:
     This quintessential and archetypal " let's put on a show in a barn!" musical. This Mickey Rooney-Judy Garland musical has all the kinetic energy and beaming goofiness that made their films together (nine in all) so popular. Rooney plays the son of a Vaudeville performer (Charles Winninger). Rooney decides to put on his own show (in a barn!) to save his family's fortune, his town, his peers, and, gosh darn it, even the American way of life with girl pal Garland at his side.

* Features:
     Busby Berkeley's big production numbers are a sight to behold, from a march through town for the title number to dated minstrel show routine which has Garland and Rooney in Blackface. Jitterbug Swing dancers Maxie Dorf and Larry Wise are said to be in this film but not confirmed.
