    Overview

    Synopsis


    Metropolitan
    Metropolitan was the first release from the newly merged 20th Century-Fox corporation. Famed operatic baritone Lawrence Tibbett stars as Thomas Renwick, the new leading man for temperamental diva Ghita Galin (Alice Brady). After storming out of the Metropolitan Opera, Ghita organizes her own troupe, full of young, untried singers. On the eve of the company's first performance, Ghita walks out again, and it's up to Renwick to pull himself and his cohorts together to put on their own show. In other words, it's Mickey Rooney and Judy Garland with better music. Lawrence Tibbett's splendid singing voice was, alas, not enough to transform him into a satisfying screen personality. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
