Sickly theatre director Julian Marsh battles his illness to put on a new broadway spectacular. The show's rich producer has his would-be girlfriend Bebe (Dorothy brock) in mind for the lead, who breaks her ankle the night before the premiere. Determined that the show must go on, Peggey Sawyer (Ruby Keeler) is plucked from the chorus and propelled into the spotlight.
This sort of picture could only have been produced in the unbelievable decadence of the 1930s studios. Girls applied to be in the chorus the way they line up to appear on Pop Idol today. The result is an absolute spectacular. Not to be missed.
