Fans of modern movie musicals like "Chicago" (2002) and "Hairspray" (2007) should know that those musicals might not have happened if not for Busby Berkeley, the talented director credited with creating the art form of the Hollywood musical. In this song and dance-filled collection, the best of Berkeley's musical extravaganzas are on full display. "42nd Street" (1933), "Gold Diggers of 1933" (1933),"Footlight Parade (1933) and "Dames" (1934) star such notable hoofers and crooners as Dick Powell, Ruby Keeler, Ginger Rogers and James Cagney. It's hard to top lavish production numbers like "We're in the Money" or "Lullaby of Broadway."
