Broadway impresario Gary Blake (Dick Powell) stages a satirical musical with singer Alice Faye as "the richest girl in the world." When the real-life heiress (Madeleine Carroll) shows up at the theater outraged, Blake winds up falling for her. "On the Avenue" (1937) co-stars the Ritz Brothers; among the Irving Berlin tunes is "I've Got My Love to Keep Me Warm." Faye shines as Gay '90s beauty "Lillian Russell" (1940) in a lush musical biodrama that traces the actress's life from her discovery and rise to fame to her 1912 marriage to a newspaper mogul. With Don Ameche, Henry Fonda; songs include "After the Ball." "That Night in Rio" (1941) has Ameche playing both a rich Brazilian baron and his nightclub performer lookalike, Larry Martin. When the aristocrat's wife (Faye) needs singer Larry to pose as her hubby, comical complications follow. Carmen Miranda, S.Z. Sakall also star; songs include "Chica Chica Boom Chic." And "The Gang's All Here" (1943), Busby Berkeley's first Technicolor musical, finds New York chorine Alice and G.I. James Ellison falling in love just before he's sent to the Pacific. With Miranda and Benny Goodman; songs include "The Lady in the Tutti-Frutti H at." 5 3/4 hrs. total on four discs. Standard; Soundtrack: English.
