Forever controversial and even hated by many when first released, it is Antonioni's comment on society (particularly of the time) and on human nature. The film was made by MGM in the UK under a newly-created company called Premier Productions. Because this company had no agreement with the Production Code office (as MGM did), the frontal nudity and explicit scenes...

Dick Powell, Adolphe Menjou, Gloria Stuart, Alice Brady, Hugh Herbert, Glenda Farrell, dir: Busby Berkeley; Warner Brothers. Post-Production Code musical extravaganza was small on plot, this time with a mother attempting to marry her daughter off to a millionaire while staying at a posh hotel -- but the film was huge in production numbers. These were some of Busby Berkeley's most sophisticated, intricate and best. Amongst them were "The Words Are In My Heart," and the iconic "Lullaby of Broadway." By 1935, Warner Brothers...
