Every Monday morning, when we’re not pinned under a giant boulder, we like to start off your week right: with something so damn odd that it sort of makes the rest of the work week’s surreality go down a little easier.
This time around, it’s a snippet of Ginger Rogers singing from Gold Diggers of 1933. It’s “We’re in the Money” that she’s singing, but that’s not the sorbet-worthy bit of this. No, it’s the fact this snippet features her singing in Pig Latin. And not content to just show her singing thus, notice how the camera goes in for a mildly extreme close-up while she does it. Watch and realize it’s one blade away from having a distinct Un Chien Andalou feel to it, isn’t it?
It appears the only in-print way to snag the complete film at this point is the get it from The Busby Berkeley Collection.
