Now — 11th December 19

During the 1930s, in the days before the Hays Code, the musical genre in Hollywood offered a space for film-makers to engage with social issues of the day – most importantly, and urgently, the economic depression that blighted many people’s lives and forced people to make difficult decisions to survive. All three films feature the choreography of Busby Berkeley.
Screening as part of BFI Musicals! The Greatest Show on Screen, a UK-wide film season supported by National Lottery, BFI Film Audience Network and ICO.
