Origin[edit | edit source]

Busby Berkeley, born Busby Berkeley William Enos, (November 29, 1895 – March 14, 1976) was a highly influential Hollywood movie director and musical choreographer. Berkeley was famous for his elaborate musical production numbers that often involved complex geometric patterns. Berkeley's works used large numbers of showgirls and props as fantasy elements in kaleidoscopic on-screen performances.

Berkeley's popularity with an entertainment-hungry Great Depression audience was secured when he choreographed several musicals back-to-back for Warner Bros, of which 42nd Street was one.
