The airiness of this film is the result of hard, focused work... It's not high art, but it's about as impressively disciplined as filmmaking craftsmanship can get.
If Gold Diggers of 1935 wasn't quite up to its predecessor, it's probably the fault of the newly enforced Production Code.
This second musical in the Gold Diggers series is vastly entertaining due to Busby Berkeley's production numbers, including the Oscar-winning song Lullaby of Broadway.
For the most part a smashing spectacle.
Not as good as the trifecta of Busby Berkeley (that would be Gold Diggers, Footlight Parade, and 42nd Street), but it's worth watching for the obligatory big musical number at the end. Victor Moore can be quite charming when he wants to be.
Like most of these films it's pinned to a silly plot about a skinflint millionairess, a scene stealing Alice Brady, and various people who surround and try to make a couple of bucks off her. The real star here is the musical numbers brilliantly staged by Busby Berkeley, the justly famous Lullaby of Broadway is both fantastic and chilling.
Somewhat better than I expected. This isn't just a song and elaborate dance musical, which was what I expected, but it's got a funny story about a mother who is trying to marry off her daughter to this rich guy, who's a bit crazy actually, but she falls in love with another guy while they're on vacation or something. Oh, and the cast they list on here isn't right, this movie does star Dick Powell, but also it stars: Adolphe Menjou, Gloria Stuart, Alice Brady, Hugh Herbert, and Glenda Farrell.
