Blu-Ray Boutique Episode 25: Musicals for the Holidays

Hosts Tim Rosenberger and Rosalie Lewis dance their way through two 1933 pre-code musicals: Gold Diggers of 1933 and Flying Down to Rio. The former features musical sequences directed by the great Busby Berkeley, both feature Ginger Rogers in supporting parts, and the latter marks the first pairing up of Fred Astair and Ginger Rogers. Take a listen to see why these movies may send your feet tapping, especially during the holidays. Both films are available through Warner Archive.
