An effervescent musical from the golden era when Judy and Mickey were at their peak and in which Judy looks lovely throughout. Some wonderful Gershwin songs even though the finale (I Got Rhythm) is a little over the top and not really in keeping with the rest of the film, but as this section was directed by Busby Berkeley and the bulk of the film by Norman Taurog I can see why. I just wish it had been filmed in Technicolor, even so I highly recommend this film for a bit of escapism.

Judy and Mickey's last and best musical together 19 Oct 2004
By Robert Moore - Published on
This was not the first film version of this great George and Ira Gershwin musical, but it was the best. It had been a huge hit on Broadway, with Ginger Rogers in the lead role (a fact nodded at by changing the female lead from Molly Gray to Ginger Gray). It was the final and best of a half dozen or so musicals that Judy Garland and Mickey Rooney made together in a very short period of time. It isn't that the production was so much more lavish than the previous films, but the blending of several absolutely stellar Gershwin songs with the combined talents of Judy, Mickey, and Tommy Dorsey and his orchestra.

We have to be honest here: the plot is nothing to write home about, like a host of other musicals (until the late 1940s and early 1950s, the majority of film musicals were rather thin on plot). The story, such as it is, is a frame upon which to hang songs, and luckily there are a host of songs. This is not exactly the original songs as performed in the stage version of the show; some of the weaker numbers being replaced by stronger Gershwin numbers. At worse, the numbers are highly entertaining, but a few of them completely transcend the typical productions in most of the Garland-Rooney MGM musicals. Judy Garland had few moments in her career as splendid as when she sang "But Not for Me," and almost the same thing could be said for "Embraceable You." "I Got Rhythm" is one of the finest numbers that Judy and Mickey ever did together. I am not a fan of the big bands ( I mean the swing bands, not jazz orchestras such as Duke Ellington's), but I make a bit of an exception for Tommy Dorsey, and the numbers his orchestra covers in this film show why. "Fascinatin' Rhythm" features a marvelous arrangement, and gives wonderful moments for many of the wonderful soloists that filled his band. My lone complaint is that Dorsey himself doesn't do as much playing as I would have liked. Though he wasn't a great jazz innovator, his technique on trombone was simply amazing, and he managed to transform the instrument from a bleating horn to a subtle, beautiful, and lyrical instrument.

This film is also an important transition film in the careers of both Judy Garland and Mickey Rooney. It was the last film that they would ever do together, after having starred together in a host of youth musicals in the previous few years. It signaled the beginning of the decline of Rooney's career. He would go on to make a huge number of films in his career, most of them rather minor parts, and he would from time to time score a very fine role, but from this point on his and Judy Garland's careers would be moving in opposite directions. In their first film together, Rooney was the big star and Garland the newcomer, but immediately after this film Garland would be catapulted to stardom in a host of great MGM films throughout the 1940s. But this also signaled the end of a period for Judy Garland. She is so pure and innocent looking in this film that it almost breaks your heart. It was essentially her last film as a teen (though she was 21 at the time). Her next film would be MEET ME IN ST. LOUIS, and it was during this film that people began giving her the drugs that would play such a large role in the rest of her life. She would remain fresh and beautiful looking in her next several films such as THE CLOCK and THE HARVEY GIRLS, but eventually the strain would take its toll. But not in GIRL CRAZY. Her face is a marvel of innocence and loveliness. I'm not sure she was ever more beautiful than in this one.

The Best of the Garland-Rooney Films 20 Sep 1999
By A Customer - Published on
The last significant appearance of Garland and Rooney on screen is a delight. Garland, often subordinated to Rooney in previous efforts, sparkles as the unexpectedly sophistocated daughter of a western university's dean; Rooney's manic energy, which is often well-over the top in most of his films, is neatly subdued to the demands of the story. The score, which includes such favorites as "Not For Me," "Embraceable You," "I Got Rythmn," and "Bidin' My Time," is a classic; the script is charming; and the stars are expertly supported. Who could ask for anything more?

One song in particular makes this movie special 28 Nov 2003
By Samuel H. Cooper - Published on
I'm giving this film 5 stars based on one particular song in the film: "Bidin' my time". This performance by Judy just knocked my socks off when I caught it some time ago on late-night television. The rest of the film is fine too, but I'm a nut about music (all music from classical to rock) and after hearing this particular rendition I just had to own it. There's something different about how she and her group perform this song. I don't quite know how to describe it but it caught my interest immediately. It seems somehow ahead of its time. Anyway, that particular performance is just a joy to watch. I noticed that the commercial review had also picked up on this particular song.

The fun never stops... 3 Aug 2000
By Derek Lajeunesse - Published on
This is Mickey and Judy's best film together. They play off each other wonderfully and Judy's laughter is infectious. But it's the GREAT musical score that makes "Girl Crazy" a movie to go crazy about. This was their last starring feature together (she went on to bigger things in the years following) so get it, tuck it away and keep it for a rainy day when you need a reminder of how talented this screen duo was.

FAST AND FUNNY 23 May 2000
By "scotsladdie" - Published on
In GIRL CRAZY, Rooney and Garland finally grow up, despite the best intentions of a formula which saw them as kids on stage in film after film. Judy plays Ginger Gray, the daughter of a college president. The character Garland once described as "Dorothy Adorable", once given free rein in BABES ON BROADWAY (1941), BABES IN ARMS (1939) or the Andy Hardy movies, has, however, grown more complex. Ginger Gray shows the contradictory and ironic charm of the latter Garland characters, both vulnerable and quick to laugh at herself in a way that the roles as "Dorothy Adorable" hardly suggest. Berkeley films such as BABES IN ARMS & BABES ON BROADWAY had used the familiar "let's put a show on" theme as a glorious excuse for Garland, Rooney and dozens of other chorus folk to concoct variety shows. Although Norman Taurog's (he was Jackie Cooper's uncle) direction and staging of the musical numbers reflected the beginnings of a new style in film musicals, the plot of GIRL CRAZY is completely conventional. Not only are Rooney and Garland featured in virtually every scene, but they usually dominate the frame in Taurog's composition. Tommy Dorsey's orchestra provides the swingy ambience and the musical score is outstanding: "But Not for Me", "I Got Rhythm" "Embraceable You" "Fascinating Rhythm" and "Bidin' My Time" along with 7 others!
