Vintage Australian movie reviews


Recommended Posts

That is, movie reviews from Australia, not reviews of Australian movies. I was looking the other day for some information on the 1929 movie *Tanned Legs* and whether or not it was originally a Broadway show. One of the links in my Google search was to [this|http://trove.nla.gov.au/ndp/del/article/24696650], an Australian site digitizing newspapers. It's from Hobart, Tasmania in October 1932 about the new lineup of films hitting the movie palaces there, including *Tanned Legs*, which was on a double bill with Richard Dix's *Lovin' the Ladies*.


Reading the breathless praise of *Tanned Legs* and its musical numbers, I can only imagine what the good people of Tasmania thought when they finally got to see a musical like *42nd Street* with its Busby Berkeley visuals. :-)
