Mervyn LeRoy's classic musical stars Joan Blondell and Ginger Rogers and features elaborate song and dance sequences designed staged and choreographed by Busby Berkeley.

So why is it screening in Australian Perspectives?

The extraordinary costumes, inspired by the art deco designs of the time, were created by Australian-born John Orry Kelly (or Orry-Kelly as he was known in Hollywood).

As the head costume designer at Warner Bros from 1932 to 1944, Orry-Kelly worked on over a hundred films throughout his career and collected three Oscars along the way.
