The Broadway Melody offers snarky, wiseacre humor, and effervescent charm. The Mahoney Sisters are successful singers in the boondocks, and now they've come to New York for the big time. Hank (Henrietta) is the smart one, while Queenie is the beautiful one--as Hank's fiancé Eddie Kearns says, they're "a coupla swell kids." Songwriter Eddie gets the girls a part in a revue featuring his song, "The Broadway Melody." Eddie, long engaged to Hank, falls for Queenie, whom he hasn't seen since she was a little girl. But Eddie and Queenie are both devoted to Hank, so Queenie gives in to the wooing of one of the show's rich backers, so as not to come between Hank and Eddie. This only causes more trouble, because both Hank and Eddie know exactly what kind of danger Queenie is courting by putting herself in a playboy's hands

King's finest achievement in the silent cinema is suffused with affection and nostalgia for rural America. The film had immediate and widespread commercial success, and its use of landscape is supposed to have influenced the director John Ford.

Over the course of the film the Hatburns kill one member of the Kinemon family and cripple another. Allen Kinemon, driver of the stagecoach that carries the U.S. mail in the Virginia mountains, is the hero of his young brother David. When Allen sees the Hatburns attack his brother's dog, a fight begins, and Iscah Hatburn strikes Allen with a large rock, crippling him for life. The young David is forced to accept the duties of heading the Kinemon household. Because of his mother's fear for the family, he foregoes revenge and is branded a coward by the community. Forced by circumstances to deliver the mail, David eventually encounters Hatburn, whom he takes on in an unequal fight, finally defeating his family's nemesis

Goulding (1891-1959) was by turns a writer, producer, composer, and actor, but it is as a director that he made an indelible impression. He is most remembered today as the director of Grand Hotel, the great Event Movie of the Depression."
