42nd Street

4 years, 2 months ago at Mar 4 22:49
42nd Street is the premiere backstage musical, the granddaddy of them all, setting the template for the narrative and crafting the character molds. If some of it feels flabby or overly familiar, that’s simply because it’s impossible to view 42nd Street in any other way than through the prism of our current age.   What helps matters is quite simply that 42nd Street is a Pre-Code burner, com... read more

Julian Marsh, a successful Broadway director, produces a new show, in spite of his poor health. The money comes from a rich old man, who is in love with the star of the show, Dorothy Brock. But she doesn't return his love, because she is still in love with her old partner. At the night before the premiere, Dorothy Brock breaks her ankle, and one of the chorus girls, Peggy Sawyer tries to take over her part.

"9/3/17 Classic musical drama about the ups and downs of a Broadway production with an ill director, a temperamental lead actress and a naive newcomer. This realistic look at theatre life includes the now famous 20-minute show routine directed by Busby Berkley.With plenty of biting, sassy dialogue, this was the film that saved Warner Bros and it's just as good now as it was in the 30's.

“42nd Street is the premiere backstage musical, the granddaddy of them all, setting the template for the narrative and crafting the character molds. If some of it feels flabby or overly familiar, that’s simply because it’s impossible to view 42nd Street in any other way than through the prism of our current age.   What helps matters is quite simply that 42nd Street is a Pre-Code burner, complete with a character dubbed “Anytime Annie.” Maybe it’s not as overheated and sexy as many of its contemporaries, but the Jazz Age hangover hasn’t quite lifted off of these characters. They’re frequently aware of the Depression, making numerous references to it, and maneuvering into backstage politics to ensure a job, or a sugar daddy, to help stay above it.
