The Great Ziegfeld (1936)

The Great Ziegfeld (1936) MGM Studios
Directed by Robert Z. Leonard
Starring: William Powell, Luise Rainer & Myrna Loy

Won 3 Oscars
One for Best Actress - Louise Rainer won her first of two wins Best Film
Best Dance Direction

This very lavish film centers around the great Florenz Ziegfeld Jr. (Powell) whom is marr...ied first to the lovely and Anna Held (Rainer) a French actress. Ziegfeld wants bigger and better sets of his Ziegfeld Follies in NYC and with this tests his relationships and meets the actress Billy Burke (Loy). Burke gets his heart going and puts her in his reviews which tests his marriage with Anna. This is one of my very fav film's of the 30's with perfectly casted and wonderfully staged musical numbers, a must see!!!!
