Broadway Baby Says Goodnight
Grand Old Movies is back, with a new post. We’re taking a hard, cold look at Busby Berkeley’s hardest, coldest, and greatest of his musical routines, “The Lullaby of Broadway,” from Gold Diggers of 1935. It’s a self-contained narrative about a party girl who lives for the Manhattan night life, highlighted by a demonic tap-dance routine that takes place in a Grand-Central-Station-sized nightclub. Nothing ever like it has been seen in movies before or since. Please click here to read our post. And bring along the martinis and tap shoes.
