Storyline

This tribute to Busby Berkeley features candid interviews with his friends and associates: Ruth Donnelly recalls the frantic filming of _Footlight Parade (1933) _. 'Debbie Reynolds' talks about Berkeley's influence on 'Gene Kelly' and _Singin' in the Rain' (1952) _, while Dennis Morgan speaks of his long-time friendship with Berkeley. Interviews are by 'Alan G. Barbour (I)' and Russ Jones, and stills are intercut throughout, accompanied by music from Berkeley films. The entire 'Lullaby of Broadway' sequence from Gold Diggers of 1935 (1935) is included, and Wini Shaw, who performed the number in the film, is interviewed. This film was produced through the New York Graphic Society, as a tie-in with their lavish 'Busby Berkeley Book' by Tony Thomas. Written by Anonymous
