The Pirate (1948): Cole Porter's tunes, Gene Kelly and Judy Garland's star power, and the astonishing Kelly/Nicholas Brothers' "Be a Clown" number spark an uproarious tale of a would-be seafaring scoundrel. Words and Music (1948): The glossy biopic of songwriting sophisticates Rodgers and Hart. With Gene Kelly's famed "Slaughter on 10th Avenue" ballet, irresistible Judy Garland, and fireball Mickey Rooney. That's Dancing! (1985): "No shortage of showstoppers" (Entertainment Weekly). Gene Kelly hosts the spirit-lifting celebration of decades of dance and fun--including a Ray Bolger dazzler cut from The Wizard of Oz. That Midnight Kiss/The Toast of New Orleans (1949, 1950): Starring Mario Lanza and Kathryn Grayson! A singing truck driver (Lanza in his film debut) travels the road to success. Next, the big voices conquer the Big Easy in a tale of a diva and Cajun Caruso. Royal Wedding/The Belle of New York (1951, 1952): Two from Fred Astaire! Love can make you dance on the ceiling... if you're Fred Astaire! The legend shines in a tale of royal--and other--romance, co-starring Jane Powell. Playboy Fred says "I Wanna Be a Dancin' Man" but prim Vera-Ellen wants a fellow with his feet on the ground.
