It combined the old love stories among several cast members and also how the secondary characters are nearly all out for a buck. It was visually interesting too. Some of the Berkeley arrangements had a mass motion similar to nazi rallies of that era. For example the dancing busboys throwing their arms in the air wasn't all that dissimilar to Nuremburg nazi saluting. Those parallels aside, the DVD also has a cartoon from that era and a Bob Hope short. Just like a Saturday matinee of old.
