    Another Great collection!

    Broadway songs abound with the fantastic visualization of the MGM movies. Sit back and enjoy!

    it depends....

    well, lets start with show boat. i know its a big hit. the music is definitely phenominal. however, i'm not sure how i like some of my favorite actors in such a depressing movie! ava gardner broke my heart, but not in a good way, because they never resolve her problems. kathryn grayson is one of my favorites, but her and howard keel's relationship is so depressing as well! musicals have always been my way to see hope in love that will last forever. this didn't give me that feeling. agnes moorehead and joe e. brown as kathryn's parents were my favorite part of the entire movie, because agnes reminds me of her character endora on bewitched, and joe e. brown has been a favorite of mine since i saw him in some like it hot. but bottom line, no conflicts are resolved, and it's not a happy ending. Annie get your gun-it was pretty good. great music. betty hutton was hilarious as annie oakley, and louis calhern and keenan wynn were great too. howard was better in this one, but her still had extreme jealousy, and in the end makes her sacrifice her love of shooting so he can be number one again. an ego like that should've been dealt with better. kiss me kate is great. the music is lacking a bit more, but the dancing is incredible!! when you have bob fosse and ann miller dancing and howard and kathryn grayson (again) singing, you can't go wrong. keenan wynn is a gem again, he always plays a hilarious sidekick in his movies. howard had his moments of not knowing how to appeal to kathryn and then retaliating by making her more miserable, but eventually he figures it out. the way the plot works is very unique as well. Seven brides for seven brothers is very cute at some points, and lacking in maturity in others. jane powell is fabulous, but howard is back to being very show boat-esque as a spouse. the dancing from the other six brothers are great, and the comedic scenes are just that-comedic. i couldn't stop laughing when the 6 brothers try to kidnap their girlfriends back, under the bad advice of howard keel. jane versus howard in educating the 6 boys in love is an interesting task, and ultimately, these 6 teach howard a thing or two on how to love instead.
