Busby Berkley (1895–1976)

| Category: Modern & Contemporary

Busby Berkley (1895–1976) was one of greatest choreographers of the early American movie musical. While working in Hollywood, he convinced Samuel Goldwyn to use camera close-ups on female chorus line dancers and overhead shots of dancers to create a kaleidoscope effect in his movies. One of his greatest movie successes was 42nd Street (1933).
