  1. I enjoyed the podcast as well. I took your advice and watched the first few musicals in order. I had watch Broadway Melody a couple of days ago, and then today watched Hallelujah and Love Parade. What a difference in less than a year!
  2. I do agree that the clip shows a brighter perspective of life than might be realistic. The character of Anna Held seems quite naive and child-like, and her performance seemed innocent. In a search to learn more about Anna Held online, I found out that she was known at the time for her "risqué songs, flirtatious nature and willingness to show her legs on stage". I would guess that if this was a pre-code movie, more might have been done to attempt to show what her actual performances were like, either in her wardrobe or song lyrics. Also, if it was pre-code she may have had a wardrobe change in the dressing room after the show. I also think her character might have changed from her sweet stage performance, to a more world-wearied woman behind the scenes in her dressing room.
