Blue Skies. A foolish plot, but also Bing Crosby, Fred Astaire, Technicolor and 28 Irving Berlin songs (TIME, Oct. 14).
The Jolson Story. A big, noisy, colorful entertainment, with sound track by the Jazz Singer himself (TIME, Oct. 7).
Sister Kenny. Well-made pro-Kenny biography that blends fact, fiction and propaganda (TIME, Sept. 30).
The Killers. Hemingway's short story, hopped up with a complex plot of thievery, violence and doublecross (TIME, Sept. 9).
Brief Encounter. Excellent British-made tearjerker, expanded with realism and skill from a Noel Coward playlet (TIME, Sept. 9).
