"Girl Crazy" (1943) With Judy makin' "Bidin' My Time" a cowboy hoedown, Mickey mimicking a boxing announcer in a knockout comedy bit and Tommy Dorsey providin' "Fascinatin' Rhythm", this Gershwin tunefest is a swell bidin' of everyone's time, including a joyous Busby Berkeley-staged "I Got Rhythm" finale. "Strike Up The Band" (1940) Mickey and Judy lead the effort to enter their school band in a swing-music contest hosted by Paul Whiteman. Judy solos "Nobody", Rooney dances and drums with volcanic energy and director Busby Berkeley brings his famed angles, precision dance and cutting to "Do the La Conga" and the rousing title finale. "Babes In Arms" (1939) With Rodgers and Hart songs and Busby Berkeley direction, this tale of kids rescuing their cash-strapped vaudevillian parents by putting on a show is Mickey and Judy's first musical together, Arthur Freed's first producer credit and Rooney's first Oscar(R) nomination. "Babes On Broadway" (1941) This time the babes aid inner-city kids by puttin' on a show. Mickey hoofs, clowns and shakes his fruit basket as Carmen Miranda. Judy sings and emotes (in French!) as Sarah Bernhardt. And both bring down the house with "How About You", "Hoe Down" and a minstrel-showstopping finale.
