Originally produced as an American motion picture in 1929.
The Broadway Melody offers snarky, wiseacre humor, and effervescent charm. The Mahoney Sisters are successful singers in the boondocks, and now they've come to New York for the big time. Hank (Henrietta) is the smart one, while Queenie is the beautiful one--as Hank's fianc Ěddie Kearns says, they're "a coupla swell kids." Songwriter Eddie gets the girls a part in a revue featuring his song, "The Broadway Melody." Eddie, long engaged to Hank, falls for Queenie, whom he hasn't seen since she was a little girl. But Eddie and Queenie are both devoted to Hank, so Queenie gives in to the wooing of one of the show's rich backers, so as not to come between Hank and Eddie. This only causes more trouble, because both Hank and Eddie know exactly what kind of danger Queenie is courting by putting herself in a playboy's hands.
