Dance, Girl, Dance (1940) DVD9
Dance, Girl, Dance follows the mercurial fortunes and misadventures of two members of the troupe -- the innocent, dignified Judy (Maureen O'Hara) who longs to become a legitimate ballerina and her friend and rival Bubbles, who hopes her racy dance routines will land her a cash-flush husband. When Bubbles finds an enthusiastic reception for her sexy numbers on the burlesque stage as Tiger Lily White, she invites Judy along to serve as a high falutin' ballerina stooge for her act. Scenes of the crude, raucous audience, who relish Bubbles's sultry numbers, but boo and jeer during Judy's classy ballerina routines, make for a surprisingly realistic portrait of the divisions between high and low theater at the time.
While Bubbles and Judy occupy opposite ends of the entertainment spectrum, they also vie for the same boyfriend, the wisecracking high society playboy Jimmy Harris (Louis Hayward).
