Rose Of Washington Square
An interesting musical from 1939. Apparently based on Fanny Brice and her criminal boyfriend, it is a nice look back at the twenties from the perspective of the thirties. Actually, it’s kind of boring and convoluted. There is also a lot of Al Jolson in blackface, so that’s awkward…Also there is this song Ja-Da, which is pretty good. Oh, and Louis Prima makes a tiny appearence.
