Kansas City Kansan - 10/10 by Steve Crum We're still in the money watching this Depression era classic.
Journal and Courier (Lafayette, IN) - 9/10 by Bob Bloom Busby Berkeley's imaginatively-staged numbers steal the show; fun to watch, even today.
CinePassion - 7/10 by Fernando F. Croce The Depression as a period of artists in suspension, Busby Berkeley to the rescue
User Review - 10/10 by ryan w A risque, empowering, and effective political film here. For it being set in the great depression Gold Diggers manages to give its viewer beautiful musical numbers along with comedy to forget about society's downside. The performances are top notch especially Keeler and Bloandell. Other than the recent film La La Land you just don't see films produced like this today.
User Review - 8/10 by Sarah F Outstanding classic musical, amazing choreography and a wonderful cast. Imaginative, great songs and musical numbers. Highly entertaining and a joy from start to finish.
User Review - 8/10 by Moon W There is nothing greater than seeing a comedy that dates from before the hollywood production code. And you thought movies from the thirties were never dirty.
User Review - 8/10 by Z P From Ginger singing in pig latin to "My Forgotten Man" definitely a one of a kind experience.
User Review - 8/10 by Edith N So too bad for Gold Diggers that I saw Footlight Parade firstâ??if I had, Iâ??d probably have liked it better. Then again, it came out a year after Footlight Parade, so my disappointment was, for once, historically accurate. Itâ??s a cute enough storyâ??Ruby Keeler, an out of work showgirl who rooms with a few others like herself, is in love with the mysterious songwriter who lives across the way. Heâ??s in love with her too, and everything is looking up when the girlâ??s old producer shows up to say heâ??s putting on a new showâ??right in the middle of the Depression! He hears the neighborâ??s songs and decides to have him write the show; everyoneâ??s terribly excited until they realize they donâ??t have any funding. But the mystery man shows up with $10,000, and wonâ??t say where he got it. He also wonâ??t perform onstage, opposite his girlfriend, even though he has a better voice than the juvenile theyâ??ve cast in the production. . . until thereâ??s a show business emergency and he has to go on. Once he does, we find out why he was so mysteriousâ??heâ??s filthy rich, and his family doesnâ??t want him in show business. To thwart his controlling older brother, though, Rubyâ??s two roommates cook up a scheme to trick the stick-in-the-mud and his old lawyer into falling in love with them, with some mixed identities thrown in for good measure. Their plan works, and everyone finishes off happily in love, but what good is that without fifty dancing girls comprising a â??human waterfall,â?? like they do in Footlight Parade? Exactly. Trash. Cagney has spoiled me so terribly!
User Review - 8/10 by Devon B Opening with the musical number "We're in the Money" (as sung by a young and sexy Ginger Rogers) and closing with the distinctly downtrodden downer "Forgotten Man", Gold Diggers of 1933 manages to encapsulate the era of Great Depression Hollywood all in one swoop. Producer Barney Hopkins (Ned Sparks) has a great idea for a musical: a celebration of the Great Depression. There's just one problem, and it's a small problem really, all he needs is the money to put on the show, and someone to write it and star in it. Of course, living next door to his troupe of showgirls is the most amazing song-writer (Dick Powell) who is also a great singer and a millionaire in disguise, and he solves all the above problems with a snap of his fingers. Of course, this exposes the millionaire song-writer to the world, and his snobby, snootish brother is subsequently able to track him down. He discovers he's engaged to be married to one of the show girls, and, suspecting her of being a gold digger, he goes to confront her and "buy out" her brother's obligation to marry her. When he confronts the wrong show girl, they decide to teach him a lesson. Gold Diggers of 1933 is a lot of fun, and features some great musical numbers. The aforementioned Ginger Rogers plays a character named Fay Fortune, and of course is referred to often as "Miss Fortune", tee hee. One of the main numbers in the film, "Pettin' in the Park" seemed so corny at first, but as the production progressed, it grew on me considerably. Plus, like all the songs here, it's quite catchy and memorable. There's a lot that's corny in this film, but there's just as much that's genuine. Either way, it's a great time capsule-piece of entertainment.
User Review - 8/10 by Cita W Fun! Busby Berkeley! What more do you need?
User Review - 8/10 by Alexandre L Not a fan of musicals -- never been. I find most of them silly and over the top. Gold Diggers of 1933 succeeded in keeping my interest with a well-balanced amount of musical numbers mixed in with some good, lighthearted comedy.
User Review - 6/10 by K R From Ginger Rogers singing in Pig Latin, to the "Pettin' in the Park" musical number (with a creepy baby!), to the all around mesmerizing Busby Berkley choreography, what's not to love?
