Critic Reviews for Second Chorus
Comic situations are abundant and original singing and dancing numbers are pleasing to the ears. [Full review in Spanish]
Audience Reviews for Second Chorus
Or: The Artie Shaw Movie, wherein Artie plays and (kind of) acts, gamely supported by Fred, Paulette, and Burgess in some hastily put together "rivals competing for the same girl" anecdote (of which poor Burgess gets the goat, eh?). Charles Butterworth, inserted into the thing like the proverbial square peg, actually does better than everything but Shaw's music. It's interesting, sort of, watching Fred and Burgess pretend to play trumpet. Goddard does okay in her one dance routine with Fred.
Strictly minor league musical despite Fred's presence. This is one of a couple low rent films he did between splitting with Ginger and landing at MGM.
