Tagline: Your dream of perfect beauty comes true!

Plot: A classic 1930s musical, GOLD DIGGERS OF 1933 offers some of Busby Berkeley’s most spectacular choreography. The opening scene features Ginger Rogers singing "We’re in the Money" dressed only in silver dollars--a dream come true in depression-era America. Other spectacular dance sequences include roller-skating policemen and a midget dressed as a baby in "Petting in the Park," stunning overhead footage of chorus girls in "The Shadow Waltz," and the dark, moody "Remember My Forgotten Man," which presents the fate of jobless WWI veterans. The gold diggers are out-of-work showgirls Carol, Polly, and Trixie, played respectively by Joan Blondell, Ruby Keeler, and Aline MacMahon. All three hope for a job on a new musical about the depression but soon find out that the supposed producer is himself broke. But young singer-composer Brad Roberts (Dick Powell) offers to foot the bill--provided that Polly plays the lead. When Brad is forced to play the lead on opening night, his upper-crust family finds out that he is engaged to penniless Polly and send a henchman to reel Brad home. Fortunately, the henchman will have to deal with Carol and Trixie first in this wisecracking singing and dancing extravaganza.
