42ND STREET
1933, Warner Bros., 89 min, USA, Dir: Lloyd Bacon

An aging Broadway director puts on one last show and ably handles constant complications - including a last-minute replacement when the star of his production breaks her ankle. The most famous of the Warner Bros. musicals is also one of the fastest and funniest, thanks to expert work by Ginger Rogers and a plethora of Warner’s contract players. Optimistic and sexy yet sharply aware of the Depression's ravages, this beautifully choreographed - by Busby Berkeley - classic influenced later films from ALL THAT JAZZ to BOOGIE NIGHTS. With Dick Powell and Ruby Keeler.
