All about Fannie Brice
This 1930 movie is a showcase for cabaret numbers by the great comedienne Fannie Brice, tied together by a fairly thin plot about a boxer. The numbers are highly entertaining, making it clear why Fannie was such a great success in Broadway Reviews. For example, in the song "When a Woman Loves a Man," a chorus girl sings in the style of Helen Kane (who inspired the Betty Boop cartoons), and Fannie bumps her aside and does her own parody of Helen Kane.Was this review helpful?

For some reason, one of the numbers in the original movie, the Yiddish patter song "I am Sasha, the Passion of the Pascha," has been cut from the Kino Video edition. At one time, this number was available on YouTube, but appears to have been deleted for whatever reason.
Harry Green, playing Fannie's brother, is a good example of the comedians of the period -- funny, but politically incorrect.
