Babes in Arms
Mickey Moran's (Mickey Rooney, in an Oscar-nominated performance) and Patsy Barton's (Judy Garland) vaudevillian parents won't allow them to join their troupe, so they decide to put on their own show. But they'll have to do some fancy footwork to persuade the school administrators to support them. Directed by Busby Berkeley and based on Rodgers and Hart's popular Broadway hit, the musical romp was Rooney and Garland's first screen pairing.
