OSCAR WINNER: Best Picture Best Actress - Luise Rainer Best Dance Direction Flo Ziegfeld's midway attraction isn't drawing flies. "How's business, Ziggy?" a rival taunts. But this winner of three Academy Awards, including "Best Picture," provides the career-chronicling answer. The Great Ziegfeld follows the roller coaster career of famed stage producer Florenz Ziegfeld (played by William Powell), whose business ventures could be good (with Broadway's legendary Follies and more) or bad (including times the showman could scarcely rub two nickels together), but never lacking in optimistic excess. The all-star cast includes memorable performances from Powell, Myrna Loy, Oscar-winner Luise Rainer, Frank Morgan, Fanny Brice and Ray Bolger to name just a few.
