Black Friday: "We're in the Money"

Not sure why, but Busby Berkeley's Gold Diggers of 1933 always strikes my fancy, espcially today--Black Friday, the biggest shopping day (shopping week!) of the year. Maybe they're in thee money, maybe they're not... but they're spending it.

Gold Diggers of 1933 is a pre-code film stars Ruby Keeler, Joan Blondell, Aline MacMahon, Ginger Rogers Ned Sparks,  and Dick Powell. Directed by Mervyn LeRoy with songs by Harry Warren and Al Dubin.. but I always think of Busby Berkeley, stager and choreographer, as the main force behind the film ..

Here's a clip to enjoy on Black Friday, even if you're not "in the Money"....

Loved this. It was the Depression, but laughter has always been the best survival technique. Like taking the Blues and infusing humor. This clip caught all that and the wink at the just on the edge of salacious costuming was funny too.
