I enjoyed virtually the entire movie. The only thing I didn't like about the movie was how it treated blackface.

I can't say I had ever heard of Ziegfeld before seeing this movie, but now that I have I'm amazed that I hadn't. He was a true rags-to-riches story, being that he went back and forth between the two so often.
