Additional Information

42ND STREET (1933) DIR: Lloyd Bacon.

CAST: Warner Baxter, Bebe Daniels, George Brent. Kicking off a trio of successful backstage musicals, all choreographed by Busby Berkeley, this classic revels in hope while never ignoring the grit of Depression-era life. Featuring an outstanding cast of seasoned performers from the silent days in a ginormous cast with up-and-coming new faces, 42nd Street charts a young chorus girl’s accidental rise to stardom (Ruby Keeler) once seasoned Broadway pro Dorothy (Bebe Daniels) sprains her ankle before opening night. 35mm, b/w, 89 min.

GOLD DIGGERS OF 1933 1933 DIR: Mervyn LeRoy.

CAST: Warren William, Joan Blondell, Aline MacMahon. Second of three massively blockbusting Warner Bros. musicals from the early ‘30s, Mervyn LeRoy and Busby Berkeley’s glitzy, gritty spectacular primarily breathes with the lives of its effervescent showgirls: Ruby Keeler, Joan Blondell, Aline MacMahon and a fresh-faced Ginger Rogers are sensational. Era-staples such as “We’re In The Money” receive the sublime visual treatment of Berkeley’s surrealist, formational choreography for a cine-musical experience best experienced on the silver screen. 35mm, b/w, 90 min.
