Busby Berkeley

 

Busby BerkeleyBusby Berkeley, was truly a genius of choreography and design. His design sense and knack for innovation in film is why I find him a fascinating personality who deserved his own site.  When I was in college, although I majored in Painting, I took as many film history classes as possible, because I loved watching classic movies.  The Professor of the class on American film focused on Busby Berkeley many times and even devoted a whole class just to his musical numbers.

Perhaps because of all those hours spent in the dark with those 1930’s musicals is why my favorite Berkeley work is that done at Warner Brothers.  My artistic nature is the reason that I loved and enjoyed seeing the patterns and images he created with hundreds of dancers and elaborate set design.  He has never been matched!  I hope you will enjoy this trip detailing his life’s work as much as I did while creating this site.
