For Valentine’s Day: A Pick-up Line circa 1933

“I’m young and healthy, and you’ve got charm…”

Truly one of the great pick-up lines.  Ever.

So thanks, Busby Berkeley.  And thanks, too, for that  “top” made entirely out of a single fox fur.  Berkeley’s body-shot heavy production numbers are always a great reminder of how racy Hollywood was  before it got tame (and then got racy again).   This one also testifies that long before he helped turn Ronald Reagan into a Republican, Dick Powell was quite the song and dance man.  Sexy all around.
