  1. I did my best to watch it with time period and context in mind. Hank was my favorite character, especially when she finally calls out Eddie for being in love with Queenie. I also liked that everyone was supportive of Hank’s desire to continue performing and not settle down. Of course, her sister MUST give up her performing dreams because naturally, a woman can’t be a career woman AND a decent wife. *cue the eye rolls.*

    The thing I found really interesting is that the sister angle reminded me a lot of “A League of Their Own.” One sister being considered “the natural” and the other being more passionate about said talents. Hank also reminded me a bit of Mama Rose- only being more determined to succeed when encountered with setbacks and replacing a beloved partner, but keeping the same act. 

    Is it a great film? Nope, but I can definitely see some seeds getting planted for what musicals would become as they grew and matured.
