ISHPEMING — “Gold Diggers of 1933,” Warner Brothers’ all-star, dramatic musical spectacle, said to be even greater than “42nd Street,” opens a four-day engagement in the Ishpeming theater on Sunday. A fitting sequel to “42nd Street,” which started new styles in screen fare, “Gold Diggers of 1933,” excels its predecessor in beauty, in catchy tunes and “whistling” music, in comedy and in its story value. Included in the cast are Warren William, Joan Blondell, Ruby Keeler, Dick Powell, Aline MacMahon, Guy Kibbee, Ginger Rogers, Ned Sparks and 200 beautiful chorus girls directed by Busby Berkeley. Charles “Chic” Sale, noted make up artist, comedian, and humorist, appears for the first time as he is in real life in “Lucky Dog,” the Universal production which will be shown Saturday only in the Ishpeming theater, with Buster, “The Wonder Dog.”
