Gold Diggers of 1937 (1936)
Dick Powell plays an insurance agent with musical ambitions while Joan Blondell is a showgirl who becomes a secretary. But the plot is secondary as dance creator Busby Berkeley turns a garden party into a tap-happy romp, and Blondell leads leggy soldiers in a banner-waving, precision-formation rendition of "All's Fair in Love and War" that's Berkeley spectacle at its showy best. Berkeley received an Academy nod for Best Dance Direction.

Hollywood Hotel (1937)
The plot about a Hollywood newcomer (Dick Powell) caught between a spoiled star (Lola Lane) and her likeable look-alike (Lola's look-alike sister Rosemary Lane) is secondary to watching Busby Berkeley's ace direction. The film opens with the jubilant debut of Tinseltown's unofficial anthem Hooray for Hollywood. The jaunty "Let That Be a Lesson to You" shows off Berkeley's mastery of editing and camera angles. Benny Goodman and his Orchestra is also featured with Harry James on trumpet and Gene Krupa on drums are in the number "Sing, Sing, Sing".

Varsity Show (1937)
Broadway impresario Chuck Daly (Dick Powell) leads cast that includes film-debuting sisters Priscilla and Rosemary Lane and fluty-voiced comic character star Sterling Holloway, in this exuberant college musical. Oscar nominated for his dance direction in this film, Berkeley creates and directs a football-themed finale featuring high-style overhead shots, kinetic camerawork and hundreds of dancers on a 50 ft. by 60 ft. staircase.

Gold Diggers in Paris (1938)
The Gold Diggers are headed for Paris, bringing their feathers, frills, and ballet shoes. A French diplomat has mistaken 43rd Street's Club Ballé for the American Academy Ballet, and the chorus isn't going to turn down a free trip to Paris over such a tiny misunderstanding. Rudy Vallee stars as the club's impresario and Busby Berkeley creates and directs the inventive musical numbers. Bridging the musical and comedy aspects of this film is an odd little group called the Schnickelfritz band.
