Bonus w/ 42nd Streeet
26 September 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was included as a bonus with the DVD "42nd Street". Also included were some NRA features describing a day at work in Hollywood. Most of this stuff is pretty self-serving but in the depths of the Depression who could blame Hollywood for putting their best foot (hoof) forward? In rapid fire succession we get candid glimpses of Jimmy Cagney (just a regular guy, they state, Dick Powell, and a host of Hollywood luminaries. Incidentally, Cagney must have been there to shine up Joan Blondell, who IMDb correctly identifies as having been madly in love with Blondell---who could argue with that? The 20's fascination with collegiate/campus life hadn't faded yet with the Columbia football team and a lot of sophomoric soft shoeing by Hal Leroy--is he related to Jim Carrey? All in all it was a nice TV Guide kind of visit to people from another world.
