Alexander’s Ragtime Band

This great musical is barely mentioned nowadays yet it’s timeless in its entertainment. Every minute is packed with wonderful Irving Berlin tunes as well as some marvelous dance routines. Tyrone Power w lovely Alice Faye heads the star studded cast and Alice shows her beautiful deep voice and sultry style.  Tyrone is there for the swoon factor and il sure the ladies weren’t disappointed. However The young slim Ethel Merman steals the show. I was never a fan but she outshines everyone with her talent.  I would love to see TCM highlight this 1930s musical. Henry King said it was his all time favorite

We released the complete soundtrack several years ago from the original optical tracks. Outtakes include Ethel Merman singing "Marching Along With Time". I also did the commentary on the DVD release. Alfred Newman's musical direction is sensational.


Here's the Main Title:
