News and Notes
Gold Diggers of 1933
The plot (directed by Mervyn LeRoy) involves a group of showgirls struggling to make a living during the depression, a society kid trying to conceal his songwriting career from his family, and a hilarious case of mistaken identity. But nobody really watches a Busby Berkeley musical for the plot --it's the eyepopping dance numbers! And Gold Diggers delivers with neon violins, silver-dollar-clad showgirls, and Ginger Rogers singing "We're in the Money" in pig Latin. Now that's entertainment.
