Sunday, November 26, 1933

Went to Sunday school this morning. Saw "Footlight Parade" with Pauline. Daddy got me a white rat. Mrs. Raifert was over. I stayed all night.
Footlight Parade is a 1933 American musical film starring James Cagney,
Joan Blondell, Ruby Keeler and Dick Powell, and featuring Frank McHugh, Guy
Kibbee, Hugh Herbert and Ruth Donnelly. The movie was written by Manuel Seff
and James Seymour from a story by Robert Lord and Peter Milne, and was directed
by Lloyd Bacon.

The spectacular Busby Berkeley musical numbers, written by Harry Warren (music)
and Al Dubin (lyrics) and Sammy Fain (music) and Irving Kahal (lyrics), include
 "By a Waterfall", "Honeymoon Hotel", and "Shanghai Lil".

In 1992, Footlight Parade was selected for preservation in the United States National
Film Registry by the Library of Congress as being "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant".
