I doubt if anyone watches the old Busby Berkeley musicals for the plots. The plot for this one is pretty forgettable. The best part, of course, is the big musical sequence at the end. It is arguable if Ruby Keeler was worthy of the fetishization in one number, but as work of visual imagination the sequences are stunning, and the girls are beautiful. Plus with a chauvinistic title like Dames who can resist watching?
