Encyclopedia > Broadway Melody of 1936

Broadway Melody of 1936 is a musical film released by MGM in 1935, despite the title. It was a followup to the successful The Broadway Melody, which had been released in 1929. The thin plot involves two women plotting to see which one would star in a new Broadway musical. The film starred Jack Benny, Eleanor Powell, Robert Taylor, Una Merkel, Buddy Ebsen and June Knight.


The film was written by Harry W. Conn, Moss Hart, Jack McGowan and Sid Silvers. It was directed by Roy Del Ruth and was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Picture.


Powell became a major MGM musical star as a result of this picture, and would appear in the next two entries in the Broadway Melody series: Broadway Melody of 1938 and Broadway Melody of 1940.
