Acrobat Eddie Marsh is in the army now. His first act is to become friendly with Kathryn Jones, the colonel's pretty daughter. Their romance hits a few snags, including disapproval from her father. Eddie's also plagued by fear of having an accident during his family's trapeze act in the army variety show, which also features a gallery of MGM stars.Written by

Both Eleanor Powell's boogie woogie routine and Lena Horne's rendition of "Honeysuckle Rose" were interpolated into Thousands Cheer (1943) when MGM abandoned its production of "Broadway Melody of 1943" before it was completed. Ironically, that aborted project was to have co-starred Powell and Gene Kelly, both of whom appear in Thousands Cheer (1943) but not together. See more »

OK Plot begins to bog down, then gets completely interrupted by a parade of stars, some of them annoying, some great. Highlight of stars is Judy singing, Mickey's impressions and Eleanor Powell seen in color. Highlight of movie is Gene Kelly's only dance number (the famous one with the mop). Really good actress Mary Astor is once again wasted.
