Gotta dance, gotta dance
Oh, have I got a soft-spot for these....
(I am counting musical adaptations of broadway originals, here, not just original musical films)
<this is VERY incomplete>
All That Jazz
American in Paris
The Band Wagon
The Broadway Melody
Broadway Melody of 1940
Deep In My Heart - surprisingly dull, given the cast. Wooden script. good performances, but not even Donen’s direction could save this clunker.
Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog - short film (originally web-presented) by Joss Whedon
Flying Down to Rio
Gold Diggers of 1933
Funny Girl - meh.
Gold Diggers of 1935 -- bleaugh
Gold Diggers of 1938
Guys and Dolls
Hollywood Canteen - WWII effort is songs held together by an oh-so-thin plot; “Don’t Fence me In” is sung twice, oddly.
Hollywood Hotel - tolerably directed by marching impresario Busby Berkeley , the fantastic opening number “Hooray for Hollywood” is the movie’s peak; Ted Healy was moderately annoying; sadly, he died just before the premiere
Kiss Me Kate (original film version)
Little Shop of Horrors
Oklahoma (more than 25 years ago, so I don’t know if it should count)
Om Shanti Om
On the Town
Rocky Horror Picture Show
Seven Brides for Seven Brothers
Singing in the Rain
Something Funny Happened on the Way to the Forum
The Gay Divorcee <this, and all other “The”- prefixed movies should be re-alphabetized>
The Pajama Game
The Sound of Music
The Wizard of Oz
Yankee Doodle Dandy
Marx Bros movies
- I never thought of them as musicals before: more at “movies that have musical sequences in them.” hrm....
A Night at the Opera
A Day at the Races
The Big Store
Aladdin (half-counts: I’ve only seen the dubbed-in-Hungarian version)
The Lion King
Frozen - music cuts out half-way through. Annoying.
Want to See
New York, New York
Yolanda and the Thief
Royal Wedding (this is the one with the rotating room -- how come I haven’t seen it?!?!!!)
Silk Stockings (did I see this, or not? The description sounds familiar... half-asleep?)
Du Barry? Was a Lady
finish watching High Society (have seen first half)
