Price: Blu-ray $29.95
Studio: Twilight Time

A gorgeously accoutered movie musical, 1942’s My Gal Sal is a biopic of Gay Nineties-era songwriter Paul Dresser (nicely played by Samson and Delilah‘s Victor Mature), based on a biographical essay by his brother, the novelist Theodore Dreiser.

The ever-lovely Rita Hayworth (Gilda) is the eponymous Sal, a stage star who helps Dresser to become the toast of Tin Pan Alley.

The great Hermes Pan provides the choreography; songs are by Dresser and Fox staff songwriters Leo Robin and Ralph Rainger.

The Blu-ray’s sole bonus feature is an isolated music track.
