Gold Diggers of 1933 (1933)

4 Star Films Posted by 4 Star Film Fan on Mar 26, 2019

With the opening number “We’re In The Money,” this musical sticks it to The Great Depression and gives their audience a respite from the poverty waiting outside the theater doors. The tone is set as Ginger Rogers, surrounded by rows of scantily clad coin-covered women, sings out o read more

Cinematically Insane Posted by Will McKinley on May 15, 2015

Even if you don’t like old movies you’ve probably heard of GOLD DIGGERS OF 1933. The Warner Bros. musical about sassy showgirls and their in-the-money beaus has become iconic, thanks in part to lampoons in Preston Sturges’ SULLIVAN’S TRAVELS (where it’s verbally parodied as ANTS IN YOUR PLANTS read more

The Depression Satire, Gold Diggers of 1933

Cary Grant Won't Eat You Posted by Judy on Jan 11, 2015

What does the term gold digger really mean, in the context of the Depression? Today we think of Kanye’s gold digger; buying gold and liposuction, maybe holding a lap dog and wearing furs; not a showgirl escaping destitution. For a musical, Gold Diggers of 1933 is surprisingly earnest, managing to read more

Gold Diggers of 1933: The Ultimate Early 1930s Film

Hollywood Revue Posted by Angela on Apr 4, 2014

When a movie is described as being a product its time, it’s often meant in a sort of apologetic way.  It’s the sort of thing I say about creaky early talkies like The Broadway Melody or The Hollywood Revue of 1929.  It’s basically a nicer way of saying, “Look, I know this read more

Gold Diggers of 1933 (1933) (2)

Journeys in Classic Film Posted by on Jul 24, 2013

I knew better than to go gaga over the first Busby Berkeley movie I saw because Gold Diggers of 1933 is superior to Footlight Parade.  Not to say Footlight Parade isn’t good, but there’s far more technical skill, stronger acting and plotting in this film as opposed to yesterday’s.  read more

"Gold Diggers of 1933," or Er-way in-hay the Unny-may

The Man on the Flying Trapeze Posted by David on Jun 10, 2012

"Spare change, mister?" Everyone on stage for the neon violin number! Any movie that starts with Ginger Rogers singing "We're in the Money" in pig latin -- surrounded by chorus girls dressed in giant coins and little else -- is automatically a classic, but "Gold Diggers of 1933" is just getting read more

Gold Diggers of 1933

Hollywood Revue Posted by Angela on Feb 4, 2010

Right now, I’m kind of obsessed with Busby Berkeley musicals.  42nd Street, Footlight Parade, Dames, I love them all.  I can’t watch one of his musical numbers without wondering what on Earth was going through Berkeley’s mind when he came up with these kaleidoscopic extravaganzas. read more
