Ziegfeld Girl (1941) Discovery by Flo Ziegfeld changes a girl's life but not necessarily for the better, as three beautiful women find out when they join the spectacle on Broadway: Susan, the singer who must leave behind her ageing vaudevillian father; vulnerable Sheila, the working girl pursued both by a millionaire and by her loyal boyfriend from Flatbush; and the mysterious European beauty Sandra, whose concert violinist husband cannot endure the thought of their escaping from poverty by promenading her glamor in skimpy costumes.
An okay movie with Hollywood moralizing about theater life while showing lots of skin.
Sexual innuendo occurs several times. In the opening scenes with Shiela Regan (Lana Turner) as the elevator operator, she is describing to a friend her meeting Flo Ziegfeld on her elevator. She reports that he liked her ankles. When asked about her heels, Shiela makes a gesture with her cupped hand indicating he liked "round heels" a reference to women who fall easily into bed.
Zorro The Gay Blade(1981) In 1840's Mexico, wealthy landowner Don Diego Vega learns of his late father's secret as Zorro, the masked folk hero, and Vega adopts his new persona. But when Vega is incapacitated by an injury, he asks Ramon, his very gay, long-lost twin brother (now calling himself 'Bunny'), to replace him as the caped hero, who makes some drastic changes to his Zorro persona.
A piece of fluff, but very entertainings. A treat even for die hard Zorro fans.
