Go into Your Dance is a 1935 musical film directed by Archie Mayo and starring Al Jolson, Ruby Keeler, Glenda Farrell, and Helen Morgan.


Broadway star Al Howard’s (Al Jolson) business is slow, and no producers are taking part in his business. It seems that he just trots off to Mexico any time he wants, causing shows to close and producers to lose money.

When Howard’s sister, Molly (Glenda Farrell), can no longer find Al work, she teams him up with a young, talented dancer named Dorothy (Ruby Keeler) for a club date in Chicago. Now, with another success, Al wants to open his own club on Broadway, so he borrows money from a gangster (Barton MacLane) to open the show.

Al has Dorothy, who he ignores, the gangster’s money and the gangster's female, Luana (Helen Morgan). All he has to do is keep them all happy, until Luana sets her cap for the beleaguered Al, and everything terrible that could happen does.



This is the only film that starred both Al Jolson and Ruby Keeler, who were married at the time. Barton MacLane was billed as "Barton Mac Lane".


A famous early musical, this film includes the numbers "About a Quarter to Nine" and "Latin From Manhattan", sung by Jolson. The former song was also recreated in color in the biopic The Jolson Story (1946).
