What do “Bullets or Ballots” and “Footlight Parade” Have in Common?

1.  Both movies were made at Warner Brothers.

2.  Joan Blondell stars in both movies.

3.  Bullets or Ballots was directed by William Keighley, who is credited as being a dialogue director for Footlight Parade.

4.  A few costumes.  If you look closely at some of the showgirls’ costumes during Joan Blondell’s first scene in Bullets or Ballots, some of them might look familiar from the “By a Waterfall” number in Footlight Parade.
