USA 1933
Dir Mervyn LeRoy
With Warren William, Joan Blondell, Dick Powell, Ginger Rogers
96min
35mm
Certificate PG

A musical from and for the Great Depression. The plot (such as it is) sees songwriter Brad Roberts (Powell) defy his rich family in courting chorine Polly (Keeler); meanwhile Al Dubin and Harry Warren’s songs and Busby Berkeley’s weird, wonderful and suggestive choreography boast a dollars-clad Rogers singing ‘We’re in the Money’ and a bleak parade of jobless ex-soldiers trudging through ‘My Forgotten Man.'
