This 3 DVD box set celebrates the golden era of Hollywood musicals in the 1940s, 1950s and 1960s. Using movie trailers and interviews with stars such as Ann Miller and Shirley Jones, these programmes pay tribute to the heyday of song and dance on celluloid. Hollywood Musicals Of The 1940's:In the 1940s, America was just emerging from The Great Depression. War engulfed half the world, and the future looked uncertain. The Hollywood musical had the recipe to make things better. With the Hollywood musical, people still believed that dreams really do come true. Glamour spread across the screen. In glorious colour, and even in black and white, the screen glittered. Join the biggest stars as we celebrate the great musicals of the 1940s, when Hollywood put its best feet forward - dancing feet. In the 1940's, from nostalgia to contemporary jazz, the Hollywood musical had it all. Hollywood Musicals Of The 1950's:Relive the excitement of Opening Night as the curtain is raised on the Hollywood Musicals of the 1950s. All the music, dancing, the exotic locales, the comedy and the drama are included in a salute to the greatest musicals ever to grace the motion picture screen. From the artistry of the ballet in An American In Paris, to the Arabian Nights fantasy of Kismet, there are stars shining in all their glory. Gene Kelly, Howard Keel, Fred Astaire, Donald O'Connor and Cyd Charisse are but a few of the luminaries included. Enjoy again the depiction of the early days of talking pictures in Singin' In The Rain. Clap your hands to the songs and dances aboard the Show Boat. Watch as Shakespeare comes alive again in the musical comedy Kiss Me Kate. Thrill once more to the enchantment of Seven Brides For Seven Brothers, The Band Wagon and Damn Yankees. Fall in love again with the romance of Royal Wedding, Oklahoma! and Silk Stockings. Hollywood Musicals Of The 1960's:The 60's were the last great decade for the American movie musical, but it was also probably its best. With blockbusters like The Sound of Music, West Side Story, My fair Lady, Mary Poppins, Oliver! and Funny girl, the artform reached its peak. Join us on a singing and dancing tour from the Austrian Alps to the vauderville halls of Brooklyn... from dancing in the streets of Spanish Harlem to the shores of River City... from the chimneys of Old London to the sound stages of Hollywood. These are the best and biggest extravaganzas ever!
