I have seen this movie many times and....and...and let me put it to you this way--Joan's a knockout, Gable's a stud, Tone has a playboy tone, but if you really want to get into the essence of this movie, look at the sets throughout the movie. It's Art Deco at it's extreme best.
Two stunning examples are a spherical stoplight that stops and goes as it turns and a mirrored conical carousel. This makes you think it's the future. The streamlining definitely matches the richness of the Broadway elite and the Broadway-bound (until they become Hollywood-bound, then it gets better.)
The Deco definitely matches the stars.
