Description
Innovative director/choreographer Busby Berkeley brought the fluid energy of popular dance to the screen in exhilarating musical sequences (such as the tap extravaganza to the Oscar-winning song "Lullaby of Broadway" in Gold Diggers of 1935), choreographing the camera movement as well as his phalanxes of dancers. This five-film set includes two other Oscar nominees as well as a documentary on Berkeley, musical cartoons, and numbers from other Berkeley musicals.

"If additional confirmation were needed that the movie musical attained its independence and maturity in Busby Berkeley's hands, you can find it here in this sumptuous package…. The Berkeley style was unmistakable. It traded in a grandiosity of vision, an eye for dazzling patterns…. Seventy years later, you still can't believe your eyes."—Dance Magazine
