Wealthy moralist Ezra Pound will leave his fortune ($10 million!) to his cousin and family, if they are of sufficiently upstanding character in his eyes. But their daughter Barbara is in love with a producer and if there's one thing that Ezra dislikes, it is show business people. But this thin plot is merely an excuse to hang Busby Berkeley's fabulous musical numbers from.

Review by anonymous (posted on 20-Apr-2006)
The movie itself is only so so, but the
music and Busby Berkley dance sequences are superb. I am particularly
smitten by the "I Only Have Eyes For You" dance and music number. When
Ruby Keeler appeared in the dance number after all the faces and almost
winked at the camera, it made me a new fan. To think that all of this
music was written for the movie also amazes me. Most of the music is
still being used today. I would recommed the new disc set by Warner
Brothers for viewing all the Berkley creations.
Do you know something we don't?
