Nudity in Precode: Clip 2#

Probably the most provocative musical clip of the entire Precode era, "Pettin in the Park" begins as a perfectly innocent Ruby Keeler, Dick Powell number and ends shockingly. You will have to watch a few minutes of Busby Berkley's odd but brilliant use of women as patterns; however, when the screen rolls down the camera does not act to cover the dancers charms. It is from the 1933 film 'Gold Diggers of 1933' with Warren Willam, Joan Blondell, Ruby Keeler and Dick Powell.
