Broadway Babies (1929)


Mervyn LeRoy


Jay Gelzer (based on the story by), Monte M. Katterjohn (screen version) (as Monte Katterjohn)


Alice White, Marion Byron, Sally Eilers

The popularity of the Universal musical Broadway resulted in a whole slew of minor films with similar titles. In First National's Broadway Babies, the eponymous "babies," Delight Foster, Navarre King and Florine Chandler, are portrayed respectively by Alice White,Sally Eilers and Marion Byron. Like most chorus girls of the late 1920s, Delight hopes to marry a millionaire but settles instead for "hundredaire" Billy Buvanney (Charles Delaney). Alas, Delight is also attracted to charismatic bootlegger Perc Gessant (Fred Kohler Sr.), who involves the girl in his crooked activities. She tries to keep this a secret from Billy, but he finds out and threatens dire consequences for Perc. The latter decides to rub out Billy, a consequence averted when Perc is himself killed by one of his own henchmen. Several songs and plenty of bare female legs were the principal attractions of this formula backstage drama.
