Judy Garland and Mickey Rooney star in the November 1941 Screen Guild Theater adaptation of their 1939 MGM film, Babes In Arms. Promoting the newest film in the “let’s put on a show” cycle, Rooney and Garland sing their way through theBabes script in a quick 30 minutes. We follow this production with an episode of Leo On The Air, MGM’s radio trailer series. This one features the 1941 entry in the Rooney-Garland musical series, Babes On Broadway. Think of it as a radio infomercial for the film.
