No film better embodies the anything-goes spirit of the pre-Code era than this lavish backstage musical about a trio of showgirls looking for their big break who will stop at nothing to keep their show going-and to find rich husbands. This sharp, funny and cynical treat is a visual and auditory feast replete with coin-wearing, scantily-clad showgirls and songs extolling the virtues of alfresco lovemaking, starring Ginger Rogers, Ruby Keeler and Dick Powell, and featuring the inimitable magic of Busby Berkeley’s choreography.
