Saturday Night Cinema: Something to Sing About (1937)


I love musicals. Tonight's feature is  Something to Sing About (1936), starring James Cagney, Evelyn Daw and William Frawley.

Atlas gives this low-budget musical a high rating, because Cagney is spectacular. The dance sequences are wonderful. It is one of the few films that showcase his singing and dancing talent. If it was with any other cast, that might have been the end of it. But with Cagney starring, the movie pops.

When Cagney was 80 years old, he was asked which of his films – outside of Yankee Doodle Dandy – that he'd like to see again; this was the film he chose.

The storyline: A New York bandleader journeys to Hollywood when he is offered a contract with a studio, but he is determined to do things his way and not theirs. Go, Cagney, go!

Please take a moment to consider this. Now, more than ever, people are reading Geller Report for news they won't get anywhere else. But advertising revenues have all but disappeared.

Because never has the free world needed independent journalism more.

Everyone who reads our reporting knows the Geller Report covers the news the media won't. We cannot do our ground-breaking report without your support. We must continue to report on the global jihad and the left's war on freedom. Our readers’ contributions make that possible.
