Kansas City Kansan - 10/10 by Steve CrumWe're still in the money watching this Depression era classic.
CinePassion - 8/10 by Fernando F. CroceThe Depression as a period of artists in suspension, Busby Berkeley to the rescue
Journal and Courier (Lafayette, IN) - 6/10 by Bob BloomBusby Berkeley's imaginatively-staged numbers steal the show; fun to watch, even today.
User Review - 10/10 by Laura G"I want a dog. I want a dog named Fanny".... "You know, we ought to take a stroll along 5th Avenue and look at the shops. You'd be surprised how reasonable things are these days"..... "Did you have a mother? Whose name was Eunice? No, I did have a mother - whose name was Gertrude. You look like Eunice." God, I love this film. Ultimately quotable. They just don't make 'em like this anymore.
User Review - 10/10 by Bill WThe plot is banal. The character interactions are funny and entertaining. The dance numbers are what you are here for and they will blow you away. Joan Blondell displays an extreme depth of talent in this film, especially with the "Remember My Forgotten Man" finale. This just gets better and better with every viewing.
User Review - 10/10 by Jacquline GI thought that this was a really cute movie. It is funny and has the pure comedy hollywood was good at before the censors took over. This was a totally enjoyable movie. If i can find it im buying it.
User Review - 10/10 by Haley BSome of the coolest tunes I have ever heard. I love this one because it ties in with 42nd Street and Busby Berkeley is a genius.
User Review - 10/10 by Private Uhaha, i loved this film, funny and really cheery considering it was making commentary on the depression! we're in the money!!
User Review - 10/10 by Wezul SA masterpiece of the musical comedy genre, Gold Diggers of 1933 holds up surprisingly well in spite of a bit of sit-com-style writing in the second act. The writing is razor sharp, the cast is just about perfect, and the musical numbers are absolutley stunning. It was made just before The Code was heavily enforced on Hollywood films, and thank God it was. The film is like a time capsule of life during the depression, but never becomes depressing thanks to the wit in the dialogue and fantastic direction from Mervyn LeRoy and especially Busby Berkely. Gold Diggers of 1933 is a must-see for fans of musicals, and even if you're not, you might be surprised if you give it a try.
User Review - 10/10 by Jonathan WAnother beautiful film from the ingenious Busby Berkely, Gold Diggers is just as much about the social history of the United States during the Great Depression than it is a dazzling musical. Movies during this era weren't apt to prod a finger at the government, or point out the obvious calamities of the financial crash of 1929. I point specifically to the Astaire/Rogers films, which always had glitz and glamour, looking at the playboy angle of Astaire and the dilettante showgirl that was Rogers. What is great about Gold Diggers is that not only does it address the times, it also shows grandeur towards the rich and romanticizes love, just as the movie musical is supposed to. Because of its eccentricities and allowance to be different, it is much easier to distinguish it from the thousands of other movies of that time period which all portrayed the wealthy and luscious as the happy ones. Not only was it certainly different yet gleeful, it is serious in its intent in showing the poor and downtrodden of the country, especially in the last sequence entitled "Forgotten Man." That number shows the veterans of America who are now homeless and tarnished, one of the most moving song and dance numbers in a musical ever. Busby reuses past actresses Ruby Keeler and Ginger Rogers from his musical of that same year, 42nd Street. Both films had spectacular set design, visual effects, and lovely musical numbers. Though the music in this film was very intriguing and sticks in the brain, two of the three large scale musical numbers were confusing and didn't make sense in the context of the theater. There was still some great costume changes and background, but it was really, very, confusing. Through it all it's got a timeless sense of humor, that has survived throughout, as many good older films have. It's also good to see because it's a Pre-Code film, which deals with sexuality, pre-marital sex, and the times it was set in. Powerful in so many respects, it's one of the best examples of classic cinema.
