The Great Ziegfeld

Directed by Robert Z. Leonard
United States, 1936
Biography, Drama, Musical

Synopsis

A biography of theatrical impresario Florenz Ziegfeld, whose show business empire ranges from good (with Broadway’s legendary Follies and more) to bad (including times the showman could scarcely rub two nickels together), and all the while without a lack of optimistic excess.
