Movie Reviews

All the fun without any of those pesky plots....
Richard Dodge | San Diego, CA USA | 02/15/2007

"Well...this collection was originally on two laser discs...and all they
did was delete "Goin' to Heaven on a Mule" (thank goodness!). What you
have left are thirteen lavish Busby Berkeley numbers..cutting edge stuff
for the 1930's. Every one of them is delicious and there to be enjoyed
without the need to deal with those pesky plots. "The Shadow Waltz" would have to by my all time favorite. All those neon violins and only one
extension cord have I spotted in nearly sixty years. However...this is a true treasure...and you can put it on and watch your own favorite when you need a 'pick me up". If you are really can also get
"The Gang's All Here" and have two great Busby Berkeley numbers IN COLOR.
Yes, one of them is "The Lady in the Tutti Fruity Hat" with Carmen Miranda and a lot of ladies with BIG bananas. So, there you have it,
a way to satisfy your Busby Berkeley cravings quietly, at home, on the sly. You'll be glad you did."
Great collection of dance numbers

"This DVD only includes Berkeley's dance numbers, which, of course, are the best parts of his films. The DVD navigation is not the best, but the dance numbers are great. Well worth the money."

"Make no mistake about it, no one can ever replace the legendary Busby Berkley! For all my fellow Busby Berkley fans out there, this DVD will more than satisfy you. The choreograpy is divine and the Carmen Miranda number left me breathless, it was a pure delight to behold. I purchased this DVD on a whim and I'm so glad I did, it's worth every penny."
Busby berkeLey was a genius!

"What a peasure to see this compilation of Busby Berkeley's musical numbers.They are just outstanding and some of them jaw dropping! The wow factor is definitely here with wonderful melodies,dances and costumes.
One thing always puzzled me though:What was the deal with Ruby Keeler? I mean sure she was pretty but her singing was less than adequate and her tap dancing skills paled in comparison to even Shirley Temple!(Ok,i may be exagerating here,but the fact is...she wasn't very good.)
But i do see that she really had great chemistry with both Cagney and Powell.
I really liked Joan Blondell , she was ver expressive in her 3 numbers.
Dick Powell could certainly belt out a tune and he always seemed to enjoy himself being surrounded by an army of beautiful women,can't blame him really!
My favourite has to be "By a waterfall",no doubt a fore runner to the Esther Williams' extravaganza that were to come from MGM in later years.How'd they do that!!??!!
