    Strange rating Busby Berkeley and not seeing the great musicals that made him famous 42nd St, Footlight Parade, Golddiggers of 1933 etc on the list, but while he directed the musical sequences, he didn't direct the films themselves, but still, people refer to them as Busby Berkeley musicals. Okay I admit I'm a bit of a fan of these creaky ancient musicals.:b

    Love his dance sequences but haven't gotten around to seeing any of the films he directed.

    FYI
    The Gang's All Here (1943) Directed by Busby Berkeley is finally available on DVD from Fox/Pathe France. Fox US has been delaying this title for well over a year. And may not ever release it.
