Gold Diggers of 1933

4 years 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)

Taste of Cinema's Essential Pre-Code Hollywood (30 movies items)

"Admittedly, Gold Diggers of 1933 has many of the same plot elements 1930’s musicals often carried, like the poverty-stricken chorus girls and the struggle to finance a Broadway musical, but, on the other hand, the film also innovated by not resorting to total escapism during the musical numbers. The memorable “Forgotten Men” sequence is arguably its most chilling moment; as the title suggests, it presents a very gloomy look at Depression-era reality, something that must have hit very clos"

"SCREENING: 35mm, Ginger Rogers: All That Sass DATE: April 15th CINEMA: BFI LOCATION: Southbank SHORTS: Office Blues (★★★½) NOTE: In the wildest pigeon-related encounter I have had in a cinema since that preview of Spies in Disguise, a pigeon found its way into NFT1, so just as I sat down they had to turn the lights down in an effort to get it out the emergency exit. Nothing we tried worked - flashlights, poles, noises on our phones - so after twenty minutes the staff called Pigeon Rescue"

"FORMAT: 35mm CONDITION: ★★★½ NOTES: Screened as part of the Ginger Rogers season. Very dusty and scratchy with several cuts and changeovers that look like they had to salvage the last frames from alternate prints of the film, but hardly a line of dialogue or number was ruined by the cuts until The Shadow Waltz. DATE: April 15th 2023 CINEMA: BFI LOCATION: Southbank"

"“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"
