Gold Diggers of 1937


The plot here is even sillier than usual, and actually quite dull. I almost FFed through it. It’s only at the 90 minute point that we get what we came for, the lavish Busby Berkeley musical number, which is “Love is Just Like War,” and involves a lot of blondes (what else) marching and counter-marching with drums, bugles, and flags, and for some reason a lot of really huge rocking chairs.
