42nd Street (1933) Warner Baxter, Ruby Keeler, Ginger Rogers Directed by Lloyd Bacon - I love this movie. The big tap dance number makes me smile every time. Chorus girl makes good, becomes a star when she stands in for the injured leading lady. "Sawyer, you're going out a youngster, but you've got to come back a star!" The book calls this the "Grandmother of all the backstage musicals."
