Good News (Blu-ray) Warner Archive


With boundless enthusiasm and enough jive to meld 20s flapper giddiness with 40s swing, 1947s Good News – the feature directing debut of Charles Walters (Easter Parade, The Unsinkable Molly Brown) and screenwriting debut of Betty Comden and Adolph Green (Singin in the Rain, The Band Wagon) – is one of the best of the lighthearted rah-rah collegiate musicals (Pauline Kael, The New Yorker). Peter Lawford (as a campus football hero) and June Allyson (as the brainiac who tutors him) lead a high-spirited cast that includes Mel Torme and Broadways Joan McCracken. The Varsity Drag and Best Song Oscar® nominee Pass That Peace Pipe stand out among the numbers that are all zip and joy. And the bees knees.
