Review of Gold Diggers of 1937 trailer

PostThu Jun 01, 2017 8:00 am

Huh what? you say. It's a neat parody at Slate of the breathless-hype coverage of things like new Star Wars trailers today, as applied to an old movie:

The trailer for Gold Diggers of 1937 has silver screen fanatics in a positive frenzy as they flock to theaters to get their first glimpse of the next installment in Warner Bros.’ beloved franchise. And bad luck for MGM snobs: It looks the music, mischief, and merriment in this Warner Bros. holiday spectacular will finally put Gold Diggers on the same playing field as the Broadway Melody Cinematic Universe. Here’s everything we learned about the upcoming film from its trailer.


Here's the link.

Actually it sounds more like Variety lingo from the 1930s.

Was that supposed to be "snarky"? Is that the first time the author had seen a trailer from the 1930's? I'm surprised he didn't riff on Dick Powell's mustache.

I'd hate to see what he had to say about the trailer to HOLLYWOOD HOTEL (one of my favorites)!

Funny take on film obsessives.


Say! That's us!
