This is your typical early 30’s musical, featuring a cast that was common during the time for musicals, such as Ruby Keeler, Dick Powell and the Goddess, Ginger Rogers.
It deals with producer Barney Hopkins, suffering from the Depression, who’s trying to make the best show on Earth. With help of Dick and a gang of showgirls, he’s able to make the show possible, especially thanks to the money donated by Dick. But Dick doesn’t want to perform for personal reasons, until he is forced to. That’s when we discover he’s a trust-fund baby, and his older brother (played by Warren Williams) comes down to make sure he’s not associating their good name with the floozy showgirls. This is a truly excellent film, and it’s aged pretty well. The numbers choreographed by Busby Berkeley are very memorable, and the songs are catchy, like We’re In The Money and My Forgotten Man. A great film and recommended for those who enjoy musicals.
