Gold Diggers of 1933

1 year, 9 months ago at Apr 4 2:29
The Depression looms large over the lives of these showgirls – skipping the rent, desperate for employment, putting things in hock. And what a fun group of girls it is between Aline MacMahon’s acid tongue, Joan Blondell’s raw intensity, and a pre-supernova Ginger Rogers playing one of her good time gals. Oh yeah, and Ruby Keeler is there paired off with perpetually horny chipmunk Dick Powell... read more

Description: A Broadway producer has the talent, the tunes, the theater, and everything else he needs to put on a show—except the dough. Not to worry, say Ginger Rogers and the other leggy chorines decked out in giant coins. Everyone will soon be singing “We’re in the Money.” Soon after 42ND STREET, the brothers Warner again kicked the Depression blues out the stage door and into a back alley. Mervyn Le Roy directs the snappy non-musical portions involving three wonderfully silly love matches (including Dick Powell and Ruby Keeler). And Busby Berkeley brings his peerless magic to the production numbers, his camera swooping and glidin ... (more)

"“I thought it approached the Depression in a really innovative way…. And the women really reminded me of modern, working women. A lot of the film is about them just passionately wanting a job.” - Drew Barrymore “The Busby Berkeley numbers in this movie are so wild…and it makes a stinging statement at the end: a song about the forgotten man and how many guys that fought in the First World War are now standing in breadlines. It’s not something they’re looking back on, it’s what wa"

Gold Diggers of 1933

“The Depression looms large over the lives of these showgirls – skipping the rent, desperate for employment, putting things in hock. And what a fun group of girls it is between Aline MacMahon’s acid tongue, Joan Blondell’s raw intensity, and a pre-supernova Ginger Rogers playing one of her good time gals. Oh yeah, and Ruby Keeler is there paired off with perpetually horny chipmunk Dick Powell, but they’re thankfully kept as part of an ensemble and not the major focus.   Gold Diggers of 1933 is one of the best musical films of the 30s, and probably the best of the Gold Diggers franchise. Busby Berkeley crafted some truly wondrous and memorable numbers here between the opening “We’re in the Money,” with chorus girls dripping in coins and Rogers singing a verse in Pig Latin, a” read more

"In 1933, Warner Bros. made three popular musicals showcasing the talents of dance choreographer Busby Berkley. While '42nd Street' remains the most famous of the three to this day, it is the second, 'Gold Diggers of 1933', which remains by far the best. While '42nd Street' concentrated on backstage melodrama and 'Footlight Parade' was a fast-paced 'puttin' on a show' narrative, 'Gold Diggers of 1933' goes much deeper with the ambitious concept of creating a screwball comedy musical all about the"
