Gold Diggers of 1935

It's the summer season at a swanky resort, and none of the employees have any qualms about fleecing the rich guests for all they're worth in this madcap Busby Berkeley farce. Dick Curtis (Dick Powell) sings and romances Ann Prentiss (Gloria Stuart), but her shrill millionaire mom (Alice Brady) insists she marry eccentric T. Mosley Thorpe (Hugh Herbert) instead. Meanwhile, brilliant Russian theater director Nicoleff (Adolphe Menjou) prepares to put on the annual charity show. The show itself contains two of Berkeley's most hallucinatory numbers: "The Words are in My Heart," with its rows of twirling baby grand pianos, and the eerie "Lullaby of Broadway."
