Gold Diggers Of 1935 (1935) - Our Brief Summer Season A dazzling though delicate opening by Busby Berkeley, to an untitled tune by Harry Warren, no vocals and no stars but remarkable design, shooting and editing, leading to Grant Mitchell addressing his hotel staff, in Gold Diggers Of 1935, 1935, starring Dick Powell and Gloria Stuart.
April Showers (1948) - Can't Make Empty Seats Laugh! Opening from a screenplay by Peter Milne based on a story by the vaudevillian turned radio and Broadway raconteur Joe Laurie Jr., introducing leads Jack Carson and Ann Sothern as the fictional “Two Tymes,” performing a chestnut by Percy Wenrich and Edward Madden, in Warner Bros.’ April Showers, 1948.
April Showers (1948) - Have A Cigar! Vaudeville stars since their son Buster (Robert Ellis) joined their act, the Tymes (Jack Carson, Ann Sothern) arrive for their big gig in New York and find out from Barnes (Joseph Crehan) that they’re not legal, Billy Curtis walking in with the solution, and Mel Blanc providing the nutty dubbed voice, in Warner Bros.’ April Showers, 1948.
April Showers (1948) - Small Tyme! In turn-of-the-century San Francisco, Robert “Bobby” Ellis in his first scene in a performance that won him a rare “special certificate” citation from the A.M.P.A.S, as precocious Buster “Small” Tyme, home from military school to his vaudevillian parents’ (Jack Carson, Ann Sothern) hotel, S.Z. Sakall the proprietor, in April Showers, 1948.

She's Working Her Way Through College - I'll Be Loving You Professor (Ronald Reagan) Palmer presiding, erstwhile burlesque star Angela (Virginia Mayo) and jock Don (Gene Nelson) offer Vernon Duke and Sammy Cahn's I'll Be Loving You, staged by LeRoy Prinz, in She's Working Her Way Through College, 1952
She's Working Her Way Through College - Hot-Garters Gertie Tons of quality if short on plausibility, Ronald Reagan ("Professor Palmer") enters a Times Square burlesque joint where ex-student Angela (Virginia Mayo), under a stage name, offers Harry Warren and Al Dubin's With Plenty Of Money And You, opening She's Working Her Way Through College, 1952.
Kennel Murder Case, The (1931) - Don't Touch That Body Socialite Hilda (Mary Astor) proves herself a straight shooter when she walks in on society sleuth Philo Vance (William Powell), supported by law and order (Robert McWade, Eugene Pallette), investigating the death of her skinflint uncle, early in The Kennel Murder Case, 1934, directed by Michael Curtiz.
Kennel Murder Case, The (1931) - Unsolved Murders This is William Powell in a different movie from his capable colleagues, as Philo Vance, deducing what must have happened to the missing murder suspect, Arthur Hohl as servant Gamble, Robert McWade as prosecutor Markham, Eugene Pallette as cop Heath, in The Kennel Murder Case, 1931.
