‘Come and meet those dancing feet, on the avenue I’m taking you to – 42nd Street.’ One of the brightest, toe-tapping backstage musical triumphs from Depression era Hollywood, 42nd Street provided a major stepping stone in the career of twenty-two-year-old Ginger Rogers. Ruby Keeler is the chorus girl who steps in to replace an ailing leading lady and emerges a shiny new Broadway star but Rogers steals all her scenes as wise-cracking, gold-digging chorus girl Anytime Annie. Eye-popping choreography from Busby Berkeley is matched by an unforgettable score that includes ‘Shuffle off to Buffalo’, ‘You’re Getting to be a Habit with Me’ and the glorious title track. Part of the Glasgow Film Festival
