The greatest show on Earth.
The Great Ziegfeld.
Biopic of a Ziegfeld, who was a great Broadway show producer. The film recounts his whole life and its pretty good. He has ups and downs and goes through different women too.
The best sequence in this film is a one take performance where hundreds of performers rotate around this enormous cone shaped staircase. This scene is so unbelievable that it may be the best onstage sequence I have ever seen in any movie!
This Ziegfeld guy was really the master of Broadway shows!
