More info:


In 1971, Henri Langlois mounted an impressive Busby Berkeley retrospective at the Cinematheque Française –the first ever held in France– and this episode was made in conjunction with that. Berkeley, the American filmmaker of the 1930s and 1940s, is considered to be the master of the musical. The film pays tribute to his choreographic ballets, reflecting his obsession with geometrical forms, the gigantic nature of his figures, and his arabesque visual effects. Television show specialist Jean-Christophe Averty introduces the interview.
