Classic Musicals Collection:Classic Musicals From The Dream Factory Vol. 2 (DVD)]]>
Judy. Fred. Gene. Songs. Dance. Romance. Let the musical magic move you. Extra razzle dazzle! New Mario Lanza tribute documentary and Stanley Donen interview. New featurettes, musical number outtakes, expert commentaries, classic cartoons, vintage shorts, and more.
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.
If you like old movies with singing and dancing, this fits the bill! Few ever were better dancers than Fred Astaire. A silly story line and script merely link the dance numbers. Read morePublished 1 day ago by Karl H (Fairlawn, OH)

Like many movies from this time the ending is abrupt, they get to a certain point and say ok, that's enough, the end. Overall though it is a sweet movie with amazing dance scenes. Read morePublished 4 days ago by Jennifer L
Sweet movie that will make you feel all warm and sentimental. Unless you're made of stone.
Plus, ceiling dancing!
Wonderful movie. Wish the movies of today were as good as this one. There aren't any good musicals anymore because
the present day music isn't good.
Just a sweet, old fashioned story with lots of dancing and a very simple, unbelievable and totally predictable outcome. It was pretty much what I expected. Read morePublished 5 days ago by Nancy Evans
