The most striking part of the clip from The Great Ziegfeld was the wardrobe choice. Anna Held dress conservatively, “proper” lady. It’s an interesting contrast to pre-code musicals when women dressed provocatively, for example, The Broadway Melody (1929). If this musical were produced pre-code days, I’d expect to see a more exposé Helda (Luise Rainer). By exposé, I mean more revealing attire, especially because she sings “Won't You Come and Play With Me” which makes me think of flirty attitude.
