Dick Powell plays a desk clerk on a glitzy get-away amongst the ranks of the American aristocracy. Short on plot and heavy on style, director Busby Berkeley goes crane-crazy in the haunting sequence, “Lullaby of Broadway.”

“Busby Berkeley’s “Lullaby of Broadway” is one of the great film poems of American cinema. Superimposing utopia and dystopia, the sequence is a surrealist nightmare of class consciousness… anticipating Maya Deren’s suicidal trance film Meshes in the Afternoon.” – David James, Unseen Cinema (Anthology Film Archives)
