New York salutes Hollywood in this affectionate spoof of the Busby Berkeley-Harry Warren and Al Dubin-Dick Powell and Ruby Keeler-style film musical of the ’30s. It’s big-time New York into which sweet little Ruby from faraway Hometown, USA, has come to make it big on Broadway. Who should she chance to meet but another boy from Hometown, USA: Dick, a sailor, who also has ambitions as a songwriter. Ruby begins in the chorus and, by the end of the day, in true Hollywood fashion, Dick saves her doomed Broadway show with a smash tune, as Ruby becomes a star on the deck of a battleship which just happens to be passing by. A pastiche of 1930s musicals, the show’s atmosphere and songs reflect a good-natured send-up of the real thing.
