"[T]his biopic of showman Florenz Ziegfeld is said to be fairly accurate....Fun..."

Description by OLDIES.com:

Flo Ziegfeld's midway attraction isn't drawing flies. "How's business, Ziggy?" a rival taunts. This winner of three Academy Awards, including Best Picture, provides the career-chronicling answer. Florenz Ziegfeld Jr.'s business was good (with Broadway's legendary "Follies" and more), bad (including times the showman could scarcely rub two nickels together) and rarely lacking optimistic excess.

The Great Ziegfeld casts William Powell at the head of a lustrous cast including real-life Ziegfeldians and Hollywood favorites (particularly Best Actress Oscar winner Luise Rainer). Key creative personnel from Ziegfeld shows are on board. And musical numbers (like "A Pretty Girl Is Like A Melody," which earned Seymour Felix the Best Dance Direction Oscar) meld Ziegfeld lavishness with cinematic pizazz. Great? You bet!

Product Description:

This movie still sets the standard for what musicals should be. The larger-than-life career of stage genius Florenz Ziegfeld is aptly celebrated in this marvelous musical biography. As if the big story and all-star cast weren't enough, they threw in such unforgettable tunes as "If You Knew Susie," "Shine on Harvest Moon," and "A Pretty Girl is Like a Melody."

Plot Synopsis:

Lavish biography of famed Broadway producer Florenz Ziegfeld, from his beginnings as a carnival sideman, to world fame, featuring numerous musical numbers and cameos by dozens of Ziegfeld notables.
