Dames

It takes longer than usual to dispense with the plot (something about a public decency campaign waged against a Broadway show) and get down to the three Busby Berkeley numbers that are every Warner musical's raison d'etre. But the wait is worth it for "I Only Have Eyes for You," a literally hallucinatory number in which Dick Powell imagines every female resident of New York City transformed into Ruby Keeler—a main extension of Berkeley's obsession with multiplication and symmetry. Ray Enright directed the nonmusical sequences of this 1934 release; with Joan Blondell, Guy Kibbee, Hugh Herbert, and ZaSu Pitts.
