I love this movie except for Joan Crawford. She cannot dance. She's just a terrible God awful dancer. Who were they trying to kid?
Most impressive and so very moving is the song ..Everything I Have Is Yours.I get emotional. Touching and beautifully done. That man's voice is so incredible.Not sure of his name but so very glad I got to hear something so wonderful.The dancing Joan was painful to watch but that guy's voice totally made up for it.
Love this movie! Joan Crawford is beautiful and Clark Gable is well Clark Gable! WIsh we had actors like them now
woulda been great, if Joan hadn't danced!
Why they cast Joan Crawford as a dancer is beyond my understanding, but the movie is good despite her clunking around. Poor Fred, having her a dance partner, I wonder if he ever recovered. Joan does a very good job in her acting role as a tough gal who is determined to make it show business, and is very believable; but they should have used a double for the dancing scenes, she is by no means a "Dancing Lady." Great acting by all, most especially Clark Gable.
Great black and white film...
I thoroughly enjoyed the movie, but understood why Clark Gable was Joan Crawford's choice. To me he was far more attractive than Franchot Tone. I must say; however, that watching Joan "dance" was painful. She flailed about the entire stage, arms and head swinging in no particular direction, so heavy on her feet, but got to see Fred Astaire and Nelson Eddy...well worth the dancing agony.
dancing lady 1933
- george snedker
great art deco and production values plus fred astaire's film debut make this movie a bit special.produced by the great david.o.selznick.
Este filme um dos melhores que Clark fez ao lado de Joan Crawford. O filme animado, alegre e divertido. Muito bom.
Tone didn't get the gal because he was a lying creep! He was plotting and lying to get Janie - thank the heavens he didn't get her! Clark was a wonderful man who deserved the gal, he saw Janie's talent. Joan, Clark, and Franchot are all charming in this movie!
Dancing Lady (1933)
- Jay Higgins
What an amazing cast! It would be hard not to like a movie that stars Joan Crawford, Clark Gable, Fred Astaire and even the Three Stooges! I loved it, great fun, good music and some terrific dancing.
Decent Tone Vehicle
The reason to watch this old film is for Tone's depiction of a playguy who, for some reason, didn't get the gal.
Franchot Tone: Heart Throb
Never knew what the big deal was about Gable because he was so arrogant. As a woman, I like the kind of men who are less brute and more refined, like Franchot Tone. In this film, he handily steals the show.
Too much ado was made of Gable and Crawford since Franchot Tone is by far the better actor. It's not a bad film. It's just not very good either.
Nobody played the millionaire playboy like Franchot Tone. Something about his polished but playful look, rakish demeanor and that voice was perfect. Why he usually lost the girl is beyond me!
Really Look'n Good
- Bob M.
Appearance-wise Gable & Crawford are really in their prime. The chemistry is great,a fun cast,plus, Fred too. Those sets are a tribute to how great things can look in "Glorious Black & White". I always enjoy watching.
I too was surprised by how beautiful Joan Crawford was when she was young. I wonder why she went to that weird makeup instead of staying natural and real looking. I've seldom enjoyed later JC movies because of the distracting overdone makeup. Which is a pity, because she was very talented.

Imagine tuning into Dancing Lady to seea gorgeous Joan Crawford. She was certainly that in 1933. She is featured in elaborate dance numbers. She can danceand did with Fred Astaire. One of thefeatured players was FredericMarch...no...it's Franchot Tone. They could pass as brothers. Franchot wantsJoan's heart though she is also smittenwith Clark Gable. Add Nelson Eddy, RobertBenchley Jerome Howard, Larry Fine and Moe Howard...some know them as the Three Stooges and you have a gem if you arelooking for light entertainment. And the one and only May Robson is cast asFranchot's grandmother...This film has legs...gorgeous legsbelonging to Joan Crawford. Such a treat.
