  1. I've mostly seen these two in period pieces where the dress was more stately and restricting. It probably went a long way towards conveniently avoiding code issues. In this film, the Saloon singer was portrayed as cheap and tawdry, her dress was probably pushing the code as it was very tight and showed quite a bit of the outline of her breast which I'm surprised was allowed. I noticed it didn't penalize him for being in a Saloon and with "those" kind of girls but she was very obviously lowering herself by being there. Quite the double standard.
  2. I think it does a good job of portraying the feud between Ziegfeld and Billings in a playful manner without skipping that there was a feud and some underhandedness going on. I think I'd see this cleverness of not omitting feuds, etc but, rather, alluding to them in a coy way in other musicals of the time period. Pre-code, the dressing room scene would probably have had Held undressing and changing into another outfit. I'm not sure if her dress for the stage would've been more risque or not but the song was flirtatious and could possibly have been in an earlier movie, or the real thing.
