    But the movie needed to be depressing. I thought the fact that "Pennies From Heaven" ended very solemn effectively portrays how people during the Great Depression must have felt. The musical contradicted itself in that it did not end happily or sugar-coat the characters' lives. It was a little redundant in the comparison between great dream sequences and the harsh reality but that was needed to share the struggle of the characters to the audience. To me, the movie was well made and blended fantasy and reality in creative ways along with the great dance sequences.

    As for Christopher Walken as a song and dance man, you can hear him on the off-Broadway cast recording of Best Foot Forward made in the early 1960s with another up-and-comer - Liza Minnelli.
