Gold Diggers of 1933 featured Busby's classic gobs glamorous gals and
dressed them in dripping golden coins while singing
"We're in The Money!" Our leading lady ... Ginger Rogers .. .
first sang in English , then followed up with a Pig Latin version (!!!)
Treat yourself to a true Blast from The Past :

Then, see the original movie clip of The Dance of the Dollars - HERE.
It's truly ... . .. . Priceless.
