Good News is a 1930 American musical film based on the 1927 stage production of the same name. It was directed by Nick Grinde. The cast included Bessie Love, Cliff Edwards and Penny Singleton. The film was shot in black-and-white, although the finale was in Multicolor. The surviving print lacks the finale; no footage is known to survive.[2]

By the 1940s, the original was not shown in the United States due to its Pre-Code content, which included sexual innuendo and lewd suggestive humor. Another film based on the musical, also called Good News, was released in 1947.
