Gold Diggers of 1933

Synopsis: Chorus girls Polly, Carol and Trixie are ecstatic when they learn that Broadway producer Barney Hopkins is putting on a new show. He promises all of the girls parts in the new show and even hires their neighbor Brad Roberts, an unknown composer, to write some of the music. There's only one problem: he doesn't have the money to bankroll it all. That problem is solved when Brad turns out to be quite rich but he insists that he not perform. When opening night comes, the juvenile lead can't go on forcing Brad to take the stage. He's recognized of course and his upper crust family wants him to quit. When he refuses, they tell him to end his relationship with Polly or face having his income cut off. When Brad's snobbish brother Lawrence mistakes Carol for Polly, the girls decide to have a bit of fun and teach him a lesson.

Gone are my blues

and gone are my tears

I've got good news

to shout in your ears

The long lost dollar has come

back to the fold

With silver you can turn

your dreams to gold

We're in the money

We're in the money

We've got a lot of what it takes

to get along!

We're in the money

The sky is sunny

Old man depression you are through

You done us wrong!

We never see a headline

'bout a breadline today

And when we see the landlord

we can look that guy right in the eye

We're in the money

Come on, my honey

Let's lend it, spend it

send it rolling around

We're in the money

I say, we're in the money

We've got a lot of what it takes

to get along!

We're in the money

Look up, the skies are sunny

Old man depression you are through

You done us wrong!

We never see a headline

'bout a breadline today

And when we see the landlord

we can look that guy right in the eye

We're in the money

Come on, my honey

Let's lend it, spend it

send it rolling around

We're in the money

Come on, my honey

Let's lend it, spend it

send it rolling around

- Hey, who are you?

- You'll find out.

Come on, boys.

Might as well begin right here.

Get out of here.

Hey, you, go take them clothes off.

Go on. Come on, you punk, get out of here.

Come on,

get these music racks out of here.

Wait a minute. What is this?

- Well, who are you?

- I'm Barney Hopkins...

- producer of this show.

- Oh, yeah?

It's tough luck, brother.

I'm from the sheriff's office.

Legal attachment to collect for the credit.

- Corpus delicti, or seize the body.

- What, again?

- Don't you dare.

- Don't worry, sis, this will look nice...

in the sheriff's office.

- What's the excitement?

- It means they close the show, dumbbell.

Give me that costume.

- I beg your pardon.

- Well, we've got to take it back, actress.

Well, that's as far back as it goes.

Sorry, miss, they got to have that top.

- You can at least give me car fare.

- What for?

This is our dress rehearsal.

We got a great show.

It opens tomorrow night.

You can't do this to me

just because I don't pay a few bills.

- When the show opens, I will pay up.

- Tell it to the sheriff.

This is the fourth show in two months

that I've been in of and out of.

They close before they open.

The Depression, dearie.

I can remember

when that alarm clock used to ring.

Those good old days

when you had to get up.

Come on, let's get up and look for work.

I hate starving in bed.

- Name me a better place to starve.

- Your stomach.

Let's get up and get dressed.

I thought we might try the flea circus.

Maybe they got something for us there.

- What can we get at a flea circus?

- Fleas.

- You can get those here.

- All right. Come on, let's get up.

One, two, three.

- How about some nourishment?

- Yeah, what's on the menu, Trixie?

We'll see what the neighbors have to offer.

- You guys cut the bread and set the table.

- Have we any bread?

Yeah, have we any table?

What neighbors?

I can remember not so long ago

a penthouse on Park Avenue.

With a real tree, and flowers,

and a fountain, and a French maid.

And a warm bath with salt from Yardley's.

And a little dress that Schiaparelli ran up.

And a snappy roadster,

and a ride through the park.

Now stealing milk.

That's all right.

The dairy company stole it from a cow.

Just about a year ago this time,

I was on my way to Havana.

The birds were singing

and the sky was blue.

And I said to the big mug in the next pew,

"I need $200, big boy."

And he said, "In my pants pocket."

You know, I reached over and I took $500

out of his back pants pocket just like that.
