I think if we are talking beautiful and moving you have to include the close up of the rose in Gene Kelly's hand in the end of the dream sequence of American in Paris. Beautiful, hauntingly emotional and just plain great!

Ann Miller's "Too Darn Hot" number from KISS ME KATE. Sizzling......Lena Horne's rendition of "Love" from ZIEGFELD FOLLIES.

One of my favorite moments is Gene Kelly and Vera-Ellen dancing to "Slaughter on Tenth Avenue" from "Words and Music." What a team!

Everything mentioned is good. Just for dance merit, I love popping in anything by Fosse or Robbins, so "Steam Heat" from The Pajama Game, "Cool", the Prologue, the Dance at the Gym, and "America" in West Side Story, and the bottle dance from Fiddler on the Roof. Goosebumps every time.

For older movies, my #1 = "Moses Supposes" from Singin' in the Rain. I adore this dance!

I applaud your '30s and '40s choices. Not so much, your '50s ad '60s choices.

What are your most magical and beautiful musical moments on film for you? Mine are: 30's- 'Let's Face The Music and Dance" Fred and Ginger in Follow The Fleet 40's- "You Stepped Out of a Dream by Tony Martin in The Zeigfeld Girl.
50's- The ballet with Gene and Leslie in American in Paris.
60's- The Trapp children singing The Sound of Music to the countess.
