This is a classic backstage musical plot with Marilyn becoming the new burlesque queen when the star of the show walks away. And as she falls in love with a wealthy young admirer, her mother (Adele Jergens) tries to warn her and over-protect her. Will she make it? Will love blossom? Will she be accepted in her husband's milieu??? What a suspense.
The film is really worth buying for young aspiring actress Monroe singing and dancing through a couple of numbers (including "Everybody needs a da-da-daddy"). Even then, she showed screen presence and that magnetism that shall make her a true star a few years later. The rest is fairly forgettable (although I didn't know Adele Jergens could dance like that).
There is a good segment where Adele Jurgens (Mae) shows off some dance moves - probably the best moment of the film. The music is ok, Marilyn Monroe sings a couple of songs, but nothing too special.
The flimsy story wraps itself up over the course of an hour, but we watch it for Marilyn Monroe.
Marilyn plays Chorus girl Peggy Martin, and Adele Jergens plays her beautifull Mother,'Mae Martin' also in the chorus, and in a flashback to younger days perfoms "Crazy For You" another slinky big band number. After emerging as a soloist 'Peggy Queen of Burlesque' is wooded every day with orchids by wealthy Randy Carrol (Rand Brooks) and accepts his proposal of marriage. It is set in the days when Ladies of the Chorus were not welcomed in wealthy social circles, but at the engagement party Randy's elderly Mother (Nana Bryant) sings "You are Never Too Old-to do what you did", pretending to be a former Burlesque Queen herself to put the record straight, and everyone at their ease.
This is a completely enjoyable romantic comedy, aided by Eddie Carr, Stephen Gray, and The Bobby True Trio. Produced by Harry A Romm, and directed by Phil Carlson, this film is a 'must have'; to see a young and radiant Marilyn Monroe.
MARILYN MONROE was a young starlet when she appeared in this early film from 1948. She shows here her singing talent for the first time ever. She steals every scene as she struts her stuff and makes love to the camera as only Marilyn can.
Any Marilyn Monroe fan MUST add this film to their collection!

Ladies of the Chorus is a cheerful romance film, which features a very, very young looking Marilyn Monroe, although her signing and acting talents are as good as always!Published on 2 Jan. 2013 by Tippi
