Critic Reviews for The Great American Broadcast

All Critics (1)

It barely works, plot-wise, although the chemistry of the three leads is so sharp that we grant the story much forgiveness.

Audience Reviews for The Great American Broadcast


Some fine singing by Alice and some quality performances by specialty acts plus a good contribution from Jack Oakie make this pleasant enough but it remans a minor musical.
