    What's Your Favorite Musical?

    When I was growing up my grandmother never let me or my siblings watch cartoons at her house, instead she only let us watch classic musicals.

    My favorites were The Sound of Music, The King and I, Bye Bye Birdie, Babes in Toyland, any Shirley Temple film, and of course The Wizard of Oz. Annie was one of my all time favorites, even though that's a little more recent.

    Of course, I'll always love The Wizard of Oz and Sound of Music, but other favorites are:

    Easter Parade with Judy Garland and Fred Astaire 1948

    Fred plays a famous dancer on Broadway who is out of a partner and makes a bet that he can make a star out of any girl, so he discovers Judy sitting in a cafe, if I recall correctly. They practice together and make it big. Judy is so adorable in this. She can't tell her left foot from her right.
    You might know of "Steppin' Out With My Baby" and "We're a couple of Swells"




    White Christmas starring Bing Crosby, Danny Kaye, Rosemary Clooney, and Vera Ellen 1954

    The story of two old army pals that become a Broadway duo. They get tricked into auditioning two singing sisters. Danny is desperate to keep them within reach, so he gives them their train tickets to Vermont. The four are so head-over-heals for each other that they all stay in a little resort, to their surprise, their General owns. They end up giving him an unforgettable Christmas gift. I watch this one any time of the year.
    The funnest songs are "Sisters" with Danny and Bing mouthing it, and "Gee, I Wish I We're Back in the Army"




    Singing in the Rain with Gene Kelly, Donal O'Connor, and Debbie Reynolds 1952

    During the transition from silent films to "talkies", Gene is a famous actor and discovers his partner in film can't sing, and the sound of her voice is terrible. He stumbles upon Debbie who can sing, talk and act, unlike his counterpart, but Lena gets jealous of Debbie and wishes to take the glory for her voice. The story is all about how these actors change their movie into a musical.
    "Make 'em Laugh" is simply the best

    Classic musicals? Ahm. Most of the things I watched growing up were musicals. The Wizard of Oz is my favorite musical that is old enough to fall into the category of classic musicals.

    Not surprisingly, my favorite musical of all time is actually related to the Wizard of Oz.

    Wicked.

    Polygamy: it might not be for you, but what right do you have to keep it from me?

    West Side Story. This was produced as a movie about 1960. I saw it seven times at about 13 years old. A few years ago my grandson got a CD with the soundtrack. I asked him about it and he told me "you have probably never heard any of these songs".

    When I was a young Lad growing up I loved musicals (bizarre I know) but I was a romantic at heart, I think of movies like 7 brides for 7 brothers, just fun
    my favorite was Camelot, it was fun had a great comedy element, some good songs, but most of all it had the concept of chivalry.
    I too wanted to be a knight protecting others and standing for right not might. I suppose I'm still a romantic at heart.

    The Sound of Music (1965)

    Here is my favourite song from the film:



    I'd like to visit Salzburg someday.
    'Well, what are you?" said the Pigeon. "I can see you're trying to invent something!" "I-I'm a little girl," said Alice, rather doubtfully. She found herself at last in a beautiful garden, among the bright flower-beds and the cool fountains.
