-- Synopsis:
    Tagline: The fastest musical show on Earth, biggest song and dance spectacle of all time! A lively musical featuring Mickey Rooney and Judy Garland singing and dancing up a storm trying to make it big in New York. Mickey does several impersonations such as one of the equally energetic Carmen Miranda. Was nominated for an Academy Award in 1942 for Best Song (" How About You" ). Also shows a Blackface Minstrel routine.

* Features:
     Some very clever song/dance routines by Mickey and Judy, where Mickey shows off his talents in dance.  Features Musical act plus a Hoedown Barn Dance, Tap, Blackface and more. Swing Dancer Maxie Dorf is said to be in this film, but not verified.
