6.  Adjusted for inflation, those hats Trixie has delivered would cost about $1,300 each. She really didn’t appreciate being mistaken for a gold digger.

9.  The shots during musical numbers when the camera moves down the line of chorus girls and gives each of them a little moment to shine.  A similar shot is also used in “Remember My Forgotten Man,” only with a line of forgotten men instead of chorus girls.

  1. My selection is Busby Berkeley’s chorines arranged in the pattern of a single gigantic violin. Second choice is the soulful Etta Moten singing “Remember My Forgotten Man”.
