The Hollywood Revue of 1929 Songs Lyrics

The Hollywood Revue of 1929 is a 1929 American pre-Code musical comedy film released by Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer. It was the studio's second feature-length musical, and one of their earliest sound films. Produced by Harry Rapf and Irving Thalberg and directed by Charles Reisner, it features nearly all of MGM's stars in a two-hour revue that includes three segments in Technicolor. The masters of ceremonies are Conrad Nagel and Jack Benny.

This was the first filmed performance of the song "Singin' in the Rain". During the "Singing in the Rain" sequence, torrents of studio-made rain were poured on to the performers while they actually recorded the song. Joan sings also another great hit "Gotta Feelin' For You", assisted by the Biltmore Quartet and pianist Dave Snell. Her energetic dance number showcases her talent as a flapper. It took Crawford three days to film her segments. Joan's tap dancing number was the first recorded audible tap dance on the screen. "Low-Down Rhythm" was another great musical hit of this movie, which was sung and danced by June Purcell.

The film was shot in 25 days, at a cost of $426,000. It made a profit of $1,135,000. The worldwide gross was $2,421,000.
