5.0 out of 5 stars Simply Marvelous May 3, 2008
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Found this great collection while looking for "Singin' in the Rain"...with
Gene Kelly. Forgot how truly wonderful "Gigi" was too! And of course
"My Fair Lady" is awesome! Without a doubt we were shocked to find three
separate discs and beautiful packaging....too! Great bargain....too!

3.0 out of 5 stars Disc for Singin in the Rain July 12, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Three separate discs with each of the musicals on a separate disc. The one we wanted and chose to view first was Singin in the Rain. It would not work. The other two showed beautifully. They were not HD but were viewable. We are really sorry about the Singin in the Rain disc. What are we to do????

1.0 out of 5 stars does not play April 23, 2011
Format:DVD
I received 3 different sets of the "Essential Classics" movies collection as gifts. NONE of them play without skipping sections. I loved the concept of the set which is why I registered for them on my wish list. Truly disappointed in the quality of the product.

5.0 out of 5 stars essential classics indeed! July 11, 2009
Format:DVD
These three time-honoured musical classics deserve a space in every DVD collection. With stars like Gene Kelly, Leslie Caron and Audrey Hepburn, lush production values and memorable music, they'll be assured of giving your family hours and hours of solid movie entertainment.

MY FAIR LADY:
Rex Harrison "grows accustomed to the face" of Audrey Hepburn in the magical film version of the smash hit Broadway musical. Despite an ill-fitting singing voice provided by ghost dubber Marni Nixon, Hepburn glows as the Cockney guttersnipe who blooms under the guidance of a stuffy professor (Rex Harrison reprising his stage role).

Special features: audio commentary with film restoration experts James Katz and Robert Harris, art director Gene Allen and singer Marni Nixon; theatrical trailer.

SINGIN' IN THE RAIN:
The beloved musical classic built around the Arthur Freed/Nacio Herb Brown songbook, detailing the various trials and trevails that ensued when the "Talkies" took over silent Hollywood. Gene Kelly and Debbie Reynolds romance, whilst Donald O'Connor performs his tour-de-force "Make 'Em Laugh".

Special features: audio commentary hosted by Debbie Reynolds, and theatrical trailer.

GIGI:
The last big hurrah of the MGM musical stars Leslie Caron and Louis Jourdan in a lush adaptation of Colette's famed novella. Filmed on location in Paris by director Vincente Minnelli and featuring some of the most lavish costumes ever created by legendary Cecil Beaton, GIGI deservedly walked away with the 'Best Picture' Academy Award in 1959.

Special features: theatrical trailer.

3.0 out of 5 stars 2 out of 3 ain't bad?? November 21, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Movie arrived bundled with a few others. I was most excited about getting to watch "Singin' in the Rain". Unfortunately that movie did not work. My dvd player sat and spun trying to read the disk, but when I tried to play "Gigi" and "My Fair Lady" it read the disks and began playing them. I'm upset that it doesn't work but I don't want to return the whole set because one disk doesn't work.

5.0 out of 5 stars A little nostalgia is good for the soul! February 2, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The "Essential Classics" are aptly named, this is a great little collection of feel good movies that many of us saw with our parents (or in some cases with our grandparents). Given the current economy and instability in our world, this is a bit of escapist fare that lets us all go back to a simpler time - if only for a while. So, pour yourself a nice glass of wine, throw another log on the fire, turn down the lights, and sit back and enjoy a lighter moment in time.

The discs are well done, and the music brings back a lot of yesterdays. Would that they (Hollywood) could return to making a few good musicals again.

I bought this to share at a nursing home my mother is at. It's amazing how residents react to music & things they remember from way back. If it brings a smile or some recognition to some of them, I'm happy.
