Characterized by grandiose song-and-dance numbers featuring ornate geometric patterns and mimicked in many modern films, Busby BerkeleyÕs unique artistry is as recognizable and striking as ever. From his years on Broadway to the directorÕs chair, Berkeley is notorious for his inventiveness and signature style. Through sensational films like 42nd Street (1933), Gold Diggers of 1933 (1933), Footlight Parade (1933), and Dames (1934), Berkeley sought to distract audiences from the troubles of the Great Depression. Although his bold technique is familiar to millions of moviegoers, BerkeleyÕs life remains a mystery. Buzz: The Life and Art of Busby Berkeley is a telling portrait of the filmmaker who revolutionized the musical and changed the world of choreography. Berkeley pioneered many conventions still in use today, including the famous Òparade of facesÓ technique, which lends an identity to each anonymous performer in a close-up. Carefully arranging dancers in complex and beautiful formations, Berkeley captured perspectives never seen before. Jeffrey SpivakÕs meticulous research magnifies the career and personal life of this beloved filmmaker. Employing personal letters, interviews, studio memoranda, and BerkeleyÕs private memoirs, Spivak unveils the colorful life of one of cinemaÕs greatest artists.
