Review
William Powell stars in this Oscar winning biopic charting the fall and rise and fall (and rise...) of Florence Ziegfeld's showbiz extravaganzas, including his legendary Follies. The cast is excellent (which features some original Ziegfeldians) and captures the fly-by-the-seat-of-your-pants optimism that dominated Ziegfeld's tumultuous career. The music is great and the dancing sublime. Do yourself a favour! Watch it and cry for an age when such reckless decadence was something to be admired...
