42ndstreet-valerieharper

42nd Street is a 1933 musical film focusing on the struggles to put on a Broadway musical with such complications as an ailing director and a last minute substitution of a chorus girl for the leading lady. The film features the line "You're going out a youngster, but you've got to come back a star!" which has often been paraphrased or misquoted in other showbiz scenarios.

The film was turned into an actual Broadway musical in 1984.
