Pennies from heaven by Dennis Potter( visu )

Dennis Potter successfully adapted his BBC musical-drama to Chicago in the depths of the Great Depression. The melodrama of sheet music salesman Arthur Parker (Martin) is transposed into the thirties Hollywood musical, picking up the thread of ironic self-awareness exemplified by such numbers of the time as We're in the Money. Arthur's 'search for sexual and spiritual silver linings', shaped by the music he peddles, is given a near-Brechtian edge in the place one would least expect to find it - the MGM musical. The film manages to revive collective fantasies of the thirties with barely a hint of satirical pastiche
