Maybe in the fast paced world of the 21st Century this old time musical may seem corny and passe, but to fans of early musicals, "42nd Street" is the single musical which would define the genre for decades to come. Most musicals prior to "42nd Street", didn't even have a plot, but after this film movie musicals were elevated to an artform.
The print on this DVD copy is absolutely flawless. It is truly hard to believe that the original movie came out in 1933. The movie draws you into the lives of the players, all trying to produce a successful Broadway show. The whole cast is noteworthy and includes some of Hollywood's best like:Dick Powell,Ruby Keeler,Warner Baxter,Ned Sparks,Ginger Rogers, and Una Merkel among others. Throw in the score by Harry Warren and Al Dubin and you certainly have a feast for the eyes as well as the ears.
The DVD copy has over 30 minutes of added attractions as well. The one short included is a gem of Harry Warren singing his own tunes. The other short is an interested look from 1934 into what goes on in a Hollywood studio. Also included is the original trailer to "42nd Street". If you are a fan of great musicals, this one should certainly be in your library...

I AM A SUCKER FOR ANYTHING AT ALL TO DO WITH BUSBY BERKELEY AND HIS DELICTABLE CHORUS OF BEAUTIFUL LADIES.UNFORTUNATELY "42ND STREET" IS THE ONLY DVD THAT I CAN GET HOLD OF WITH REFERENCE TO BUSBY BERKELEY.TWO OF HIS "THE GOLDIGGERS FILMS" HAVE ELUDED ME THUS FAR - MAYBE SOME OF THE REVIEWERS OUTTHERE IN AMAZON.COM LAND COULD HELP ME OUT WITH DETAILS OF WHERE I CAN GET THE GOLDIGGER FILMS.42ND STREET IS BY FAR (IN MY OPINION) ONE OF BUSBY'S BEST MOVIES, WITH POSSIBLY THE FIRST GOLDIGGER COMING A CLOSE SECOND.THE MAN WAS WAY, WAY AHEAD OF HIS TIME IN DANCE ROUTINES AND THE SPECTACULAR STYLE OF HIS SETS.IT'S A CRYING SHAME THAT HE DIDN'T GET THE RECOGNITION HIS SO RICHLY DESERVED SO THEREFORE I AWARD HIM THE "JIMBO" FOR SERVICES TO MOTION PICTURES.I BET HE'S DANCING THE LIGHT FANTASTIC WITH ALL HIS GALS - UP THERE IN HEAVEN.IF ONLY THERE WAS ANOTHER BUSBY - I SUPPOSE ONE CAN DREAM !!!1JAMES BYRNE

But you've got to come back as a star!

"42nd Street" is one of those formula rival substitutes for the overbearing star formula chorus line movies that you see over and over. However it is old enough that this could have been the prototype for such movies as "Down to Earth" (1947). This must have been made shortly after talkies appeared ad they advertise it as one of the best movies since Warner Brothers made talkies. The story was adapted from a novel by Bradford Ropes.

It is interesting to see all the references to the "Great Depression" in the script and even the music.

A cute chorus girl Dorothy Brock (Bebe Daniels) smarms an old rich coot into financing a musical comedy and making her the star. The producer Julian Marsh (Warner Baxter) is economically poor due to the depression and has a nerves condition that makes this his last and imperatively good production. Others in the production range from old troopers to firs timers.

Most of the film is constant practicing in the day and deceit in the evening.

This film is good enough to place names next to the pictures of the actors and you will recognize many personalities form the period for example:

Warner Baxter

Bebe Daniels

George Brent

Ruby Keeler

Guy Kibbee

Una Merkel

Ginger Rogers

Ned Sparks

Dick Powell

Allen Jenkins

Edward J. Nugent

Robert McWade

George E. Stone

There are many good Songs peppered throughout the film such as:

"It Must Be June"

"Shuffle Off to Buffalo"

"Young and Healthy"

"42nd Street"

If you cotton to Harry Warren songs you may want to find the album "The Song Is Harry Warren"

We can all sit back with your popcorn and become part of 42nd street.

42nd STREET is an absolutely wonderful film! This landmark in the history of movie musicals remains fresh and timeless. Oscar- winner Warner Baxter leads a magnificent all-star cast as the director of the Broadway production PRETTY LADY. This film was a turning point in the careers of Dick Powell and Ginger Rogers. Ruby Keeler makes a strong impression in her debut and star-making role, but silent film star Bebe Daniels, as the tempermental leading lady who breaks her ankle on the eve of opening night, probably gives the best performance. The screenplay is structured, tight, and overflowing with delightful vignettes and observations about the theatre, while maintaining a perfect balance between comedy and surprisingly powerful drama. Busby Berkeley's stupendous choreography make the three finale numbers classics. Harry Warren's melodies and Al Dubin's lyrics are memorable in such standards as SHUFFLE OFF TO BUFFALO and YOUNG AND HEALTHY. Everything from the set decoration and costumes to the cinematography are perfect. This nostalgic piece of movie magic is among the greatest motion pictures ever produced.

This was the film that saved musicals, Thanks to Busby Berkeley. This film is certainly a musical classic. This is the film that saved musicals thanks to Busby Berkeley. Won't tell you everything, But I'll tell the highlights. The songs are beautiful, Great musical scores. I don't care what generation your from, if you love good music, this film is it. The attractive Bebe Daniels sings "You're Getting To Be A Habit With Me". Ruby Keeler does some good dancing for that era I guess, most people today wouldn't think much of it today, but that era loved it, because she was the first tap dance star, its not Eleanor Powell or Ginger Rogers dancing but its good. This movie basically is about what truly goes on behind the curtains of broadway and they certainly had the right people to be in the movie, because all were in Broadway so it was easy for them to betray it. A tempermental almost abusive director Mr. Marsh(Warner Baxter). A tempermental star who breaks her ankle by being drunk then Peggy Sawyer gets to replace Ms. Dorothy Brock, but before she gets to be a star Mr. Marsh who practices her to death 5 hours before the show, she almost gives up but in Mr. Marsh own way tries to persuade her to do it. I like the scene where Mrs Burke walks in on Peggy Sawyer(Ruby Keeler) people think she's going to hurt her but she doesn't, she actually wants her to do good, and tells her "You Go Out There and Be So Grand, That It'll Make Me Hate You." Another Great scene is before she goes on stage Mr. Marsh tells her "You're Going Out A Youngster But You'll Come Back A Star" words to live by.
Great songs sung by Dick Powell "Young and Healthy". Ruby Keeler sings Shuffle off to Buffalo, and she sings and taps to 42nd Street. Great Dancers, Beautiful Platinum Blondes, and Great Million Dollar Legs.
