One of the first musical films ever. In the thick of vaudeville and the Great Depression, an aging director puts on what may be his last Broadway show and, at the last moment, a naive newcomer has to replace the star. (dir. Lloyd Bacon, U.S, 1933, 89m)

42nd Street is the quintessential ’30s backstage song and dance movie-and one of the most influential and much-copied movie musicals ever.” – Chicago Tribune
