Movie trailer for the film Footlight Parade starring James Cagney, Joan Blondell, Ruby Keeler and Dick Powell. It tells the story of Chester Kent (Cagney) who starts a new career as a creator of musical numbers called “prologues”. These were short live stage productions presented in movie theaters before the main feature is shown. He is faced with several obstacles including having to present three productions back-to-back in three different theaters.
