Public Domain Xinema presents SECOND CHORUS



Starring the one and only Fred Astaire, along with Paulette Goddard, Burgess Meredith and jazz legend, Artie Shaw, SECOND CHORUS (1940) is a wonderful and hilarious musical comedy about a pair of trumpeters trying to get in Artie Shaw's band.  Along the way, they also quarrel about women, music and everything else. The music is unforgettable and the dance numbers will thrill and delight people of all ages.
