The Broadway Melody

The Broadway Melody is an early musical film. The plot involves the romances of musical comedy stars, starring Charles King[?], Anita Page[?] and Bessie Love (who was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Actress for her role). The 1929 film was written by Norman Houston[?] and James Gleason[?] from a story by Edmund Goulding[?] and directed by Harry Beaumont[?].

A silent version was also released. The movie was so popular, that two more movies with similar titles, Broadway Melody of 1938 and Broadway Melody of 1940, were released. The movie was also remade in 1940 as Two Girls on Broadway.
