Unfortunately, she makes a mortal enemy of a wicked witch when the house falls on the hag's sister.

  • Meet a dewy-eyed ingénue, a gee-whiz tenor, stuck-up stars, hard-up producers, brassy blondes and ‘shady ladies from the 80s’ They’re all denizens of 42nd Street, belting out ageless Harry Warren/Al Dubin songs and tapping out Busby Berkeley’s sensational Depression-lifting production numbers. The put-on-a-show plot spins merrily full of snappy banter and new faces Ruby Keeler, Dick Powell and Ginger Rogers. The show-stopping numbers (Shuffle off to Buffalo, You’re Getting to Be a Habit with Me and the title tune) still dazzle. 42nd Street shows good times never go out of style.

  • James Cagney created his career-defining role in William Wellman's landmark gangster movie also starring Jean Harlow, Mae Clarke, and Joan Blondell. The film, which was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Writing, Screenplay, traces the rise and fall of prohibition-era mobster Tom Powers. 

    From his childhood corrupted by the beer hall, pool parlor, and false friends, to his adulthood as a henchman of ruthless but innately decent bootlegger Paddy Ryan, Tom rises to the top of the heap, with all the accoutrements of success: custom-tailored tuxedoes, fancy cars, and gorgeous girls. But fate soon takes Tom down another path. Tommy's degeneration from brash kid to vicious lowlife is brought home in a famous scene in which he smashes a grapefruit in the face of his latest mistress (Mae Clarke).
