" 22/5/12 The first talkie to win best picture and the first musical produced by MGM. While certainly not the greatest film in the world, it's historical significance did make it an interesting watch."

Ranking the Best Picture Winners 1920s-1930s (11 movies items)

"When one thinks of late 20s in cinematic terms images of large cadres of dancers doing their thing should pop into your head. The Broadway Melody is an embodiment of that malaise. "
