Anything Goes (1936)

Director:

 Lewis Milestone

Writers:

 Guy Bolton (play), P.G. Wodehouse (play)

Stars:

 Bing Crosby, Ethel Merman, Charles Ruggles 
 
Anything Goes is a fun-filled but hardly faithful adaptation of the same-named Cole Porter Broadway musical, with additional songs by Hoagy Carmichael, among many many others. Set on a luxury liner, the story gets under way when Moonface Mullins (Charlie Ruggles), Public Enemy No. 13, slips on board disguised as a bishop. As he weaves in and out of the story, Billy Crocker (Bing Crosby) romances Hope Harcourt (Ida Lupino), titled Englishman Evelyn Oakleigh (Arthur Treacher) also pursues Hope, and brassy entertainer Reno Sweeney (Ethel Merman) chases after Sir Evelyn. Critics in 1934 complained that the original Broadway production's Victor Moore was replaced by Charlie Ruggles, but none could faultEthel Merman's rendition of {&"I Get a Kick Out of You"}, nor her duet with Bing Crosby, {&"You're the Top"} (the only two songs retained from the Porter score!) Anything Goes was remade in 1956, again with Bing Crosby, and again with little fidelity to the original (this remake required MCA Television to retitle the 1936 version asTops is the Limit).

  1. ANYTHING GOES DVD 4 Star Review

    Posted by on Dec 28th 2016

    A watchable print, with good sound ...especially as this film is unavailable commercially...


  2. Excellent 5 Star Review

    Posted by on Mar 19th 2016

    First of all the quality was great! The picture was very clear and the sound was perfect! I'm super happy with the product overall! The film itself is so much fun! I'm in love with Bing Crosby so I may be a bit biased, but he was, of course, very charming and funny. The whole story was hilarious. It was super fun to see such a young Ethel Merman!!!
