‘Gold Diggers of 1933’ Movie Summary
Chorus girls Polly, Carol and Trixie are excited to learn that Broadway producer Barney Hopkins is putting on a new show. While he promises the girls parts in the new show (and even hires their composer / neighbor Brad Roberts), he doesn’t have the money to bankroll it. Fortunately, Brad is loaded. He says he will front the money as long as he’s not performer. On opening night, the lead can’t go on which forces Brad to take the stage. This causes his snooty family to find out, and order him to quit. He refuses. They tell him to end his relationship with Polly or be cut off from the family money. However, when Brad’s snobby brother mistakes Carol for Polly, the girls decide to have a bit of fun to teach him a lesson.
