I’m sure that the real story of Florenz Ziegfeld is worthy of a three hour spectacle, but this movie plays so fast and loose with the story, unconcerned with dramatics in fact, that it clearly only wants to move as quickly as possible from one big production number or melodramatic scene to the next.

“I’m sure that the real story of Florenz Ziegfeld is worthy of a three hour spectacle, but this movie plays so fast and loose with the story, unconcerned with dramatics in fact, that it clearly only wants to move as quickly as possible from one big production number or melodramatic scene to the next.

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

"It starts off pretty well and Ziegfeld remains a mostly fascinating character throughout. The only problem is that the film gets really sidetracked with pointless dance revue scenes and, by the end, feels really empty."
