CINEMATHEQUE SEASON TWO LAUNCH: GOLD DIGGERS OF 33

Gold Diggers of 33 is Orry Kelly’s most extravagant and glamorous costume endeavour. The sight of Ginger Rogers flaunting a barely-there costume made of gold coins as she sings “We’re In The Money” in Pig Latin is a mere trifle in a constantly surprising, constantly -one-upping-itself-in-the- wardrobe-department Orry Kelly bonbon.  With great big musical numbers directed by Busby Berkeley, this epic stands as one of the most idiosyncratic, most over the top movies in American cinema to date.
