Reviews in German: " An excuse for MGM to get as many of its stars as possible on screen. What plot there is hangs on Powell as Flo Ziegfeld dreaming up an ideal Broadway review. This ranges from the godawful comedy sketches of Skelton and Ball, through the bizarre 'Baby Snooks' skit from Brice, via the wasted musical contributions of Garland and Horne, to the sublime talent of Astaire when he's dancing with Lucille Bremer (who was never promoted as much as she should have been by the studio) and his only duet with Kelly. Pick out the bits you enjoy and ignore the rest. " (Channel 4 Film)

"The film's best numbers ... are a couple of comedy skits, especially one done by Red Skelton. Fanny Brice plays a Bronx hausfrau quite ... funnily. Judy Garland is also amusing as a movie queen giving an interview. Ziegfeld Follies is entertaining - and that's what it's meant to be!" - Bosley Crowther, The New York Times, 1946

"... At least three of the numbers would highlight any review on stage or screen. In 'A Great Lady Has an Interview,' Judy Garland, with six leading men, displays an unexpected flair for occupational satire." - Newsweek, April 1, 1946

"Vor allem eine höchst aufwendige Zusammenstellung der besten Show-Nummern des amerikanischen Musicals der Vierziger Jahre. Als solches nach wie vor sehenswert." (lhg)
