When discussing musicals from Hollywood's Golden Age, I'd be apt to guess that many fans would think about those big, epic-size musicals that came out of MGM during the thirties, forties, and fifties. But this nerd doesn't. If ever I were discussing old Hollywood musicals, it's almost a given that I'll generally think of those glittery Twentieth Century-Fox gems first. Betty Grable, who emerged as one of the biggest stars on the planet, starred in a host of bubblegum musical comedies during WWII, but had Alice Faye, the original queen, not gotten sick in 1940, perhaps Grable wouldn't have taken the crown she eventually owned straight out. In saying that, if Grable hadn't become such a phenomenon in America, maybe Fox wouldn't have generated their own Grable-inspired clone by name of June Haver. Now, the argument has occasionally been made that Fox's musicals weren't quite as groundbreaking (or good, for the lack of a better word) as those MGM masterpieces. While I'd generally agree with that claim, I'd also readily admit that I wouldn't pass up an opportunity to watch Grable in something cutesy, over something more well-touted as classic.
