At the Nickelodeon: Dames (1934) choreography by Busby Berkeley

I hope your weekend includes drama and decadence on par with the elaborate and amazing spectacle created by master "cinematerpsichorean" Busby Berkeley in this clip from "Dames". This film just squeaked into release before the restrictive Hollywood code was implemented in July of 1934. And how would the world have ever survived without the bathtub sequence from this dance number???!!!
