Dixiana is a 1930 musical film directed by Luther Reed and starring Bebe Daniels, Everett Marshall, Bert Wheeler, and Robert Woolsey. The movie follows the story of a circus owner named Monty (Marshall) who falls in love with the star of his show, Dixiana (Daniels), a beautiful singer and dancer. The story is set in New Orleans during the 1800s. Monty, a wealthy man, owns a circus called "The Great Southern Shows". Dixiana is the biggest attraction in the circus, and her act is always a crowd-pleaser. One day, Monty sees Dixiana perform and is immediately smitten by her. He decides to buy her from the circus owner and make her his wife. Dixiana, however, is not interested in Monty and is in love with a handsome gambler named Carl Van Horn (Marshall).

As the story unfolds, Monty tries repeatedly to win Dixiana's heart, but she continues to reject him. Meanwhile, Carl gets into trouble with some of the other gamblers in the town, and Monty comes to his aid. In the end, Monty and Dixiana find themselves in a competition to win a horse race, and the winner will get to claim Dixiana as their own.

The film features some amazing dance numbers and beautiful musical performances. Bebe Daniels shines as Dixiana, performing elaborate dance routines and showcasing her beautiful voice. Everett Marshall does an excellent job as Carl Van Horn, the gambler in trouble.

The movie also features the comedy duo Bert Wheeler and Robert Woolsey, who provide comic relief throughout the film. Their antics are hilarious and will make you laugh out loud. The supporting cast also does an excellent job, including Joseph Cawthorn as Monty's loyal friend and Donald Meek as the nervous horse trainer.

One of the highlights of the film is the beautiful costumes and sets. The film was shot in early Technicolor, and the colors and designs are breathtaking. The finale of the film features a stunning parade, complete with elaborate floats and exotic dancers.

Overall, Dixiana is a fun, entertaining musical-comedy that will take you back in time to a world of glittering showgirls and handsome gamblers. Bebe Daniels is the star of the show, and her performance will leave you enthralled. If you love classic musicals, then Dixiana is a must-see.
