Footlight Parade is sheer cinematic joy. In this Depression-era romp, a timid stenographer (Ruby Keeler) removes her glasses and — wow! — she’s a star. A gee-whiz tenor (Dick Powell) asserts his independence. Plucky chorines tap, greedy hangers-on get their comeuppances, and an indefatigable producer/dancer (James Cagney) and his Girl Friday (Joan Blondell) work showbiz miracles to stage live prologues for talkie houses to keep their company afloat during hard times. Honeymoon Hotel, By a Waterfall and Shanghai Lil are the shows, directed by Busby Berkeley and filled with imagination-bending sets, startling camera angles, kaleidoscopic pageantry and a 20,000-gallon-per-minute waterfall. Curtain up!

I love, By a Waterfall and Shanghai Lil, but I don't think I've ever seen the film. I tend to be lazy & look at that fantastic DVD with all the musical numbers on it.

:lol: Another iTunes HD digital that I just bought in February gets a Blu-ray release.
Can I give you a list of stuff I want you to buy?:P

This great movie was made even more famous by the fact that the Disney tribute on the late Great Movie Ride stopped working shortly after launch and never got going again.


Great news on the release. What got W going on all this wonderful 30's stuff?
