Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Meet Me on Broadway is a pocket Columbia musical about aspiring performers and a shoestring production (though the dialogue is careful to include a reference to Columbia's Cover Girl, just to prove that the studio was capable of an "A" product). Fred Brady plays an overbearing director who has been blackballed by Broadway and must settle for staging country-club charity events. Marjorie Reynolds plays the daughter of the country club's owner, who helps Brady mount his Big Comeback Show--which has the ancillary effect of making stars of the whole cast. Jinx Falkenberg is the show's leading lady, while Spring Byington and Gene Lockhart are around as stuffy society types who un-stuff themselves by film's end. Among the performers are the dance team of Gloria Patrice and Nita Bieber, who enjoyed a better showcase in the concurrently filmed Columbia "Three Stooges" short Rhythm and Weep (46).
