“Bend Down Sister” dance number by Busby Berkeley from 1931’s Palmy Days. “Reach for a pickle instead of a pie.”

Someone posted this! One of my favourite things EVER!!! PAST SISSYDUDE PALMY DAYS POST HERE.

Another number Busby Berkeley created before the release of 42nd STREET in 1933. Again he employs his trademark kaleidoscopic overhead shots, “The Parade Of Faces”, his use of props and his pre-code voyeurism in this case exemplified by his braless chorus girls. The singer is Charlotte Greenwood and the dance routine begins at about 1:45 mark. Classic early Busby Berkeley.
