The Harvey Girls

( 7 )

Overview

This Warner DVD release of The Harvey Girls is a great example of the classic MGM musical: great stars and contract players, lush color photography, and high production values are all put together with a silly, fun story that can be enjoyed along with exceptional musical numbers. Not only do you get the young and fresh-faced Judy Garland, the long-limbed legend Cyd Charisse, a surprisingly sexy Angela Lansbury, and a stellar supporting cast of comic giants, but the DVD extras are a real treat as well.

Overview

This Warner DVD release of The Harvey Girls is a great example of the classic MGM musical: great stars and contract players, lush color photography, and high production values are all put together with a silly, fun story that can be enjoyed along with exceptional musical numbers. Not only do you get the young and fresh-faced Judy Garland, the long-limbed legend Cyd Charisse, a surprisingly sexy Angela Lansbury, and a stellar supporting cast of comic giants, but the DVD extras are a real treat as well. The disc offers deleted musical numbers which stand up to anything in the finished film, a stereo mix of the movie's most famous musical number, various vocal takes of the Oscar-winning Johnny Mercer-Harry Warren score, and notes and insights into the scoring session itself. The movie was made a good ten years before the widescreen aspect ratio became the norm, so the beautifully restored full-screen transfer is as close to the original theatrical release as you can get. The Dolby Digital 2.0 Mono audio track isn't as clean as the image track, but while it reveals some crackle and age in the source recording, it won't hamper your enjoyment of the movie in any way. Obviously a labor of love, this budget-priced DVD will be appreciated by film scholars, and by fans of Hollywood's golden age. The fact that Warner Bros. owns and is releasing this MGM classic musical is in itself a sad commentary on the decline of a once great motion picture company.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Craig Butler
Judy Garland was already starting her "problem period" by 1946, but one would never know it from looking at The Harvey Girls -- and that's all to the film's benefit, for she has to carry a great deal of it herself. The screenplay is partly at fault; it's serviceable, but no more, even though the basic idea and setting are unusual enough to have inspired much better. The bigger problem for Garland is that she has in John Hodiak one of the dullest and least appealing leading men of her career and so has to work extra hard to make their story believable. She gets a good deal more support from the score, which is always pleasant and contains two outstanding numbers, "On the Atchison, Topeka and the Santa Fe" and the slightly melancholy "It's a Great Big World." Choreographer Robert Alton is also an asset, especially in these two numbers, as well as "Swing Your Partner Round and Round" and young Cyd Charisse's dance to "Wait and See." Aside from Hodiak, the cast all provide solid performances, and the film has the polished beauty one expects from the legendary Freed Unit, but it's still Garland's show all the way. Whether imbuing a song with her special throbbing belt or comically retrieving steaks purloined from the restaurant, she makes an average picture into something a little special.

    Just okay

    I like Judy and Ray both, but to me, this movie was a bit of a snooze. I didn't like most of the songs, the costumes, the set design, the story, etc. The only thing that kept me watching was Angela Langsbury, believe it or not.

    chuckle-worthy?

    I watched this movie on TV, and I liked it. It's no West-Side Story, but it's kind of hilarious because some of the acting is transparent and their movements looked fake. Judy Garland's character is annoying because she keeps holding her hands up to her face whenever she's confused. But it was a good movie, overall. I guess.
