Like 42nd Street
Dick Powell ("Murder, My Sweet") joins Oscar and Golden Globe-nominee Joan Blondell ("Grease," "The Blue Veil") in this Oscar-nominated musical about three chorus girls who recruit a millionaire to keep their show going and help in their pursuit to marry rich husbands.
What's a chorine to do after her show flops? Become a gold digger! The cuties do so en masse as the Gold Diggers of 1937, kicking Depression Era blues in the keester. Dick Powell plays an insurance agent with musical ambitions, Joan Blondell is a showgirl who gives up spangles for a stenographer's pad and...well, who watches any Diggers for its plot? Instead, watch as dance creator Busby Berkeley turns a garden party into a tap-happy romp. As Blondell leads leggy soldiers in a banner-waving, precision-formation All's Fair in Love and War spectacle that's Berkeley at his showy best. As Powell croons a Gold Diggers' lullaby With Plenty of Money and You. In short, plenty of reasons to watch. Again and again.
