Fashions of 1934

In this delightful comedy (with musical numbers created by Busby Berkeley) William Powell plays a scamp, name of Sherwood Nash, who bootlegs Paris fashions for fun and mostly for profit. Ever confident, ever amiable, he is assisted by his loyal lieutenant, Bette Davis, but accompanied about Paris by night by a beauty of ersatz nobility (Verree Teasdale) from Hoboken, N.J. Reginald Owen is Oscar Baroque, Parisian gown designer and dupe of Nash; a droll Hugh Herbert wants to corner the ostrich feather market and it all climaxes in a Berkeley chorus of plumes the likes of which you've never seen.
