Description by OLDIES.com:

42nd Street: Ruby Keeler taps, Dick Powell croons, Ginger Rogers quips, and musicals are back on the cinematic map as Berkeley imaginatively stages the title tune, "Shuffle Off to Buffalo" and more.

Gold Diggers of 1933: Get out, Depression: Ginger Rogers sings/"ingsays" "We're in the Money!" Joan Blondell and doughboys "Remember My Forgotten Man." Plus Ruby Keeler and Dick Powell reteam.

Footlight Parade: James Cagney's troupers roar through Chicago to stage same-night shows in different venues. Highlights: Dick Powell and Ruby Keeler meet "By a Waterfall," Cagney seeks "Shanghai Lil."

Dames: "I Only Have Eyes for You." And for the screen. Berkeley's bravura creations include a subway dream and a motion-mosaic of a showgirl finale. With Dick Powell and Ruby Keeler.

Gold Diggers of 1935: It's summer at the hotel - let's put on a show! What a show it is as Berkeley tops himself with his "Lullaby of Broadway" masterwork about the life and death of a neon-night cutie.

The Busby Berkeley: An anthology of 21 astonishing Berkeley musical segments from 9 films of the 1930s.

Rating 5.0 Busby Berkley Collection Movie Lover: from saint germain en laye, Yvelines FR -- March, 18, 2007

A truely marvelous collection of those WB movie stage musicals of the 30's.Great music. Impressive staging that still can amaze. Laughs, romance and old fashioned fun in light-hearted manner for the most part,with some serious numbers in social commentaries, not necessarily outdated simply for the generational time gap. Like for 'My Forgotten Man' regarding war vets, or Lullaby of Broadway for life on 'the wild side'.
Add to this the many, many ewtras in shorts, cartoons, etc. and it's one wonderful package.
