Roxie Hart 1942 Ginger Rogers NR Black & White
Stars of Roxie Hart: Ginger Rogers, Adolphe Menjou, George Montgomery
Tagline: The gal who became a national pastime!
Roxie Hart signs a murder confession in order to attract publicity for her dancing career as dames don’t swing in Cook County. Will everything go as planned?
Ginger Rogers, away from her home studio of RKO and in dark curls, is fun. She was a fine comedienne and — as we get to see a bit of here — of course a fine dancer. The rest of the cast is good. In fact, it’s a great supporting cast.
Trivia. The characters of Roxie and Velma were based on real people whose murder trials took place in 1924. Beulah Annan was the basis for Roxie and Belva Gaertner was the basis for Velma. Billy Flynn’s real life counterpart was famed Chicago shyster, W.W. O’Brien.
