Gold Diggers of 1935 ★★★ 1935

The second Gold Diggers film, having something to do with a New England resort, romance, and a charity show put on at the hotel. Plenty of Berkeleian largescale drama, especially the bizarre, mocktragic “Lullaby on Broadway” number, which details the last days of a Broadway baby. ♫I'm Going Shopping With You; The Words Are in My Heart; Lullaby of Broadway. 95m/B VHS, DVD . Dick Powell, Adolphe Menjou, Gloria Stuart, Alice Brady, Frank McHugh, Glenda Farrell, Grant Mitchell, Hugh Herbert, Wini Shaw; D: Busby Berkeley; C: George Barnes. Oscars ‘35: Song (“Lullaby of Broadway”).
