Busby Berkeley

busbyberkeleycinemaBusby 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 section here on CMB.

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 the reason I like him as a director. My favorite Berkeley works are the films he did 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.
