Dementia-Friendly: 42nd Street

Screening Dates:
Tue 14 May 2:30pm

Director: Lloyd Bacon
Cast: Warner Baxter, Bebe Daniels, George Brent

When revered Broadway director Julian Marsh (Warner Baxter) falls on hard times with both his health and his finances, he helms an ambitious musical as a final production before his retirement. His lead actress, Dorothy Brock (Bebe Daniels), is torn between two loves–the show’s wealthy backer, Abner Dillon (Guy Kibbee), and the earnest but penniless actor Pat Denning (George Brent) –while aspiring young performer Peggy Sawyer (Ruby Keeler) waits in the wings, hoping for her big break.
