George Stevens United States, 1936

Duncan Gray's rating of the film Swing Time

Very strained, even by 30s comedy standards—attempting to divine the character motivations in any given scene is an exercise in futility—but it's a testament to the actors and direction that straining can look so effortless. It's equally futile to deny the spirit of good feelings. Grading this as a film is like grading the world's largest, sweetest pixie-stick as a meal. 3 out of 5 stars.
