Synopsis: Running between 1907 and 1931, the Ziegfeld Follies were elaborate stage revues mounted by the great Broadway showman Florenz Ziegfeld, inspired by the Folies Bergères of Paris. In 1945, film producer Arthur Freed recreated the lavishness of Ziegfeld’s shows with this all-star revue, consisting of comedy sketches and song-and-dance numbers featuring MGM Studios’ musical comedy stars.
“It’s all stupendous, terrific, collossal; practically everyone would agree.” – Variety
