42nd Street review
42nd Street (Warner Brothers, 1933) directed by Lloyd Bacon as simply musicals go this classic musical is simply one classic gem that I adore to watch often again and again. Busby Berkeley choreographed many enjoyable numbers. The brutal and endless rehearsals, the wise cracks and the backstage intrigues are part of this movies charm as it presents the backstage drama of making a big show on the stage. Its famous numbers such as shuffle off to buffalo and “(I’m) Young and Healthy”, and “42nd Street in the last 30 minutes of the show. Ruby Keeler shines in such her marvelous performance as Peggy Sawyer. I would say marvelous acting of the cast in this movie. The supporting cast is full of familiar faces from the ’30’s all of them really are marvelous in their respective roles. It’s cast of legends all give out marvelous performances on the screen.
Busby Berkeley’s groundbreaking choreography bursts on to the screen late in the film in a couple of dazzling production numbers in the end that all really stand out as I feel these numbers all come together in ending stretch of movie. What I enjoy about 42nd Street is its more backstage drama then musical it really makes you understands the pressures of these shows. 42nd Street is the movie was one of the early films that played a role in kick-starting the 1930’s musical genre during the Depression as it’s truly a marvelous classic that is one fine classic gem.
gold diggers of 1933 review
gold diggers of 1933 directed by Mervyn LeRoy brings the viewer back to the simple style of dance with Busby Berkeley directed and choreographed the dance scenes that feels so much fun and enjoyable to watch on screen as this enjoyable pre-code classic may be one of those classics that always feels so enjoyable to watch each time unfold on the screen.
The marvelous cast of talents in gold diggers of 1933 such as Ruby Keeler, Joan Blondell, Aline MacMahon, Dick Powell, Guy Kibbee, Warren William, Ginger Rogers all star in this movie giving out such wonderful performances as all at top of their game. We’re In The Money’ (really titled ‘The Gold Digger’s Song’) can stand alone from the film’s score, but Warren and Dubin’s other efforts all work perfectly within Berkeley’s inspired production numbers all do stand out I really adore all the musical numbers of this movie as this movie really is such fun to watch unfold on the screen.
“Shadow Waltz” is elegant and beautiful. It’s visual poetry that really shines on screen. Its lovely and enchanting to watch unfold on screen as its simply something of a joy to watch.
Remember My Forgotten Man is another musical number that really is something of a special musical number that really is such a joy. Its a wonderful joy to watch this scene.The number climaxes with an enormous arch of soldiers looming over the mass of homeless men and their desperate women. . The song shows off the hardships of the era.
It’s a rousing finale, one of the greatest combinations of cinematography, music, singing, choreography in one number really shines out. Gold Diggers of 1933 is truly a marvelous classic with such marvelous musical numbers and wonderful acting all come together to make such a classic gem that you should see.
Footlight Parade review
James Cagney stars as a fledgling producer who finds himself at odds with his workers, financiers and his greedy ex-wife when he tries to produce live musicals for movie-going audiences. Co-starring Joan Blondell and Dick Powell with spectacular Busby Berkeley dance sequences. Inducted into the Library of Congress National Film Registry.(plot off net)
By a Waterfall is a marvelous musical number that i think may be one of the flims stand out numbers. The entire number gives of a heavy Garden of Eden vibe with Dick Powell sits by a brook and daydreams of his sweetheart, Ruby Keeler. The waterfall becomes more and more elaborate, becoming an art deco swimming pool and eventually a spiral fountain of women as the scene really shines to show off the marvelous wonders that Busby Berkeley created.
“Honeymoon Hotel is another musical number that a risque, upbeat piece of music about a couple who are desperately trying to fornicate. They make an appointment to wed at the Honeymoon Hotel which i simply adore to watch unfold.
The third and last number finally sees James Cagney getting to try out his dancing chops in a normal number by compassion to the other numbers. Mind you, the man’s ability to tame the legendary Shanghai Lil certainly helps him regain his own masculinity. The idea of a man’s own sense of himself being determined by the woman he’s with is a theme that plays a lot into romantic comedies as its truly something fun to watch this scene but its not the best number to my eyes as its just a fun little number as it finishes off this delightful musical gem.
Footlight Parade is a delightful musical gem that may be one fun little musical gem that you will enjoy.
Dames bites back at the Hays Code right as it was starting to get enforced in such a fun musical gem with choreography by Busby Berkeley that really is fun. Dames” is extremely entertaining at virtually every moment, a delightful musical gem with tons of comic wit and charm.
The first strong point is the excellent comedic plot, better than that in 42nd Street, about the same as Footlght Parade. Guy Kibbe is wonderful as always, Hugh Herbert and Zasu Pitts are great. The three of them really steal the show with such wit and charm. I would say Joan Blondell really shines in her role too as she has such wonderful wit and humor. Its musical numbers all are fun little numbers.
Only Have Eyes For You” has a handful of my favorite shots as its simply marvelous to watch Ruby Keeler come out of the eye as she comes out of the glance of obsession in a way. All three of the big production numbers in the film share several traits and meanings that all feel such connections to each other as reflective of a whole fun little musical as the numbers all feel such reflective joy to them. I simply love them all as each musical scene is marvelous to watch on screen.
Try to See It My Way, Baby completely breaks out, never traipsing into one of Berkeley’s signature visual extravaganzas. But that doesn’t make it any less significant as this is last number it does stand out. Busby Berkeley’s choreography Incredible, imaginative and thoroughly astounding. Berkeley always stands out such as he does in dames as. His choreography is among the greatest things ever committed to a cinema screen as this trait really does show in this wonderful musical classic with so many ranging numbers.
The movie Dames is extremely entertaining at virtually every moment with such marvelous musical numbers with wonderful acting and classical choreography that really stands out. Busby Berkeley/Warner Bros. musicals all are such fun to watch as I often find self re-watching this classic movie often. Dames is a marvelous classic that is simply marvelous to watch unfold on the screen as simply to watch on the screen.
RUBY KEELER and Busby Berkeley always manages to make such enjoyable movies together as they did four movies together as she went from Broadway to the big screen in standout musical numbers that all are such fun to watch unfold on the screen. Busby Berkeley/Warner Bros. musicals all are such fun to watch as I often find self re-watching this classic movie often so today I enjoyed to talk these movies so much today for The Busby Berkeley Blogathon today as I feel so much joy to talk them so much as always check out other posts form the event as I hope you enjoyed my talk about RUBY KEELER and Busby Berkeley today as I do hope you join me next time for another review.
