    Dames (1934) — (Movie Clip) The Girl At The Ironing Board

    Part of the Broadway show imagined in the narrative, the first segment of a modest Busby Berkeley number, song by Harry Warren and Al Dubin, and arguably one of the few solo pieces ever to take full advantage of Joan Blondell (as “Mabel”) in a Warner Bros.’ musical, from Dames, 1934.
