Gold Diggers: FDR's New Deal...Broadway Bound is another worthy doc on the GD of '33 DVD
8 January 2013 | by tavmSee all my reviews

Just watched this on the Gold Diggers of 1933 DVD. In this one, various people including directors John Landis and John Waters discuss various things about the movie: Busby Berkeley's contributions, the pre-Code material that wouldn't pass muster a year later, and the "Forgotten Man" number in which they tell of the riots of veteran World War I soldiers during the Hoover administration and also of many of those unemployed waiting in soup kitchens for some grub that inspired this particular number. Oh, and also Ginger Rogers' Pig Latin improvisation of "We're in the Money" that inspired Berkeley to put it on film. Oh, and also Roosevelt's New Deal plan to get the economy rolling again. So on that note, Gold Diggers: FDR's New Deal...Broadway Bound is well worth a look.
