Description
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."

      Comments about this product:

      I once heard the late Mickey Rooney say something to the effect that Busby Berkley was the greatest thing in musical movie productions to ever come along. He couldn't have been more correct. Watch 'Gold Diggers of 1933' and you'll see what he (Rooney) meant. I know that the cast was great but the choreography was beyond brilliant and it was all due to Busby Berkley; Even the little details (that others wouldn't have noticed)were evident: such as in the finale "marching troops" number where each "platoon" had a platoon leader marching alongside their men in the rain (but then he was ex Army, Artillery Corps, so he knew how to arrange a formation of troops); it wouldn't have been the same movie without the genius of B. Berkley.
