Got to love that awkward moment in the 1001 journey when there is a blackface scene. Of course Mickey Rooney would be the actor that wore blackface. Seriously, what is with that guy?
This movie is just not good, period. The dance scenes are ridiculously unimpressive by Busby standards. I actually had to double check to see if he was really the choreographer.

I could go on, but I think this picture really just says it all.
