I forgot to post this yesterday.
The Wednesday evening offering in the U of V film school musical comedy series was a low budget production of an even sillier story than was told in Gold Diggers of 1933. Other than Dick Powel, I recognized none of the names of the stars.
Providentially I was spared the indignity of suffering through the entire rendering as two thirds of the way through the power went out in the theater. Though the outage was brief I took the opportunity to make an exit, headed up Calle Revolucion, and bought a chocolate chip ice cream cone for the walk home.
Friday evening’s offer of Ziegfeld Follies, with a truly all-star cast, looks more promising.
