Full movie description "Look for the Silver Lining":This musical biopic chronicles the vaudeville-to-Broadway story of 1920s' star Marilyn Miller (June Haver). From her start on the boards in Findlay, Ohio, Marilyn sings and dances her way to Broadway stardom, frequently in company with her mentor, dancer Jack Donahue (Ray Bolger).
Reviews of the Look for the Silver LiningIf you love old fashioned musicals as I do, in glorious technicolor, I think you will enjoy this biopic of the extremely popular Broadway star of the early twentieth century, Marilyn Miller, here well played by June Haver. June Haver herself gave up movies shortly after this film, became a nun for a short while and then married Fred MacMurray and retired from movies. She has a similar build, having checked out Marilyn Miller on YouTube as I have, and is well cast, unlike so many movie castings. Perhaps less pretty than the real woman, June gives an effervescent performance throughout and my only gripe is that she didn't really have the charisma perhaps that Marilyn Miller clearly must have had to have been so popular. However, there are two charismatic performances, the leading actor and wonderful dancer, Ray Bolger, who played the scarecrow in The Wizard of Oz, and the future heartthrob singer and actor Gordon MacRae, he of Oklahoma! and Carousel fame. Ray Bolger plays Jack O'Donahue a star dancer who befriends Marilyn, and Gordon MacRae plays her first husband, Frank Carter. Bolger is outstanding as usual, displaying his dancing gifts which make you long for more of his movies to be shown, although he never made that many. The same for Gordon MacRae, who never made enough musicals, who for me had the best baritone voice Hollywood ever had, and here he is under-used, but it was his first musical. Sadly, all of these great musical stars were dropped by the studios when TV and rock 'n'roll took over in the mid fifties. A criminal waste of talent. Luckily for these two guys they could adapt to TV and Broadway to continue their careers. Catch them here in a really good musical (although sanitised according to reports on Marilyn Miller) before the studio chop came. The score here by Jerome Kern and Buddy DeSylva is just beautiful, including of course the title song. Good supporting actors include Charlie Ruggles and Rosemary DeCamp as Marilyn's parents who include her in their act when she is fifteen. June Haver is a little unconvincing at this stage as she looks too old, but then she has to age about fifteen years over the movie. Marilyn Miller died in her mid thirties from a sinus operation but the movie is cut short before this so as not to bring it down at the end, a clever decision I thought.
