    Certificate

    Thanks for the heads up! Mine actually arrived a few days ago, but I hadn't checked until now! The subject line was "Your Mad About Musicals Certificate" so it was easy enough to locate, even without recognizing the sender (STRATEGICLRN). Looks good

    Jailhouse Rock

    Radio. Every teenager had a transistor radio when I was young (around the time you are talking about) and that was where you heard the new songs and performers.
  3. I'd also like to add my thanks to all involved. I've always loved musicals and learning more about them has been great fun.

    The Wizard of Oz

    I'm just home from seeing The Wizard of Oz on a big screen (first time I've seen it that way) and what a lot of fun I had! There were lots of kids, as I expected, but I needn't have worried as they were exceptionally well behaved. There were some "oohs" and "aahs" and a few "I don't like that" comments, but for the most part they were intent on watching the movie. The one funny comment was made by what sounded like an adult male, who said "Why him?" when Dorothy said she'd miss the scarecrow "most of all". I smiled at that, and at pretty much everything. In the lobby one little girl was singing "We're off to see the Wizard", and another was dressed in full Dorothy costume, including ruby slippers, basket and (toy) Toto. (These were kids who came to see the movie with their parents, not publicity stunts.) Altogether I had a most enjoyable time.

    Glenn Miller Story

    I'm pretty sure we all know that The fabricated story doesn't detract from the music in any way, though, at least not for me.

    The Wizard of Oz

    I will! It's this Saturday, so not long to wait now.
  7. All I can say is that Doris is wonderful, in Calamity Jane especially but in almost everything I've ever seen her in (and I haven't missed many).

    The Wizard of Oz

    I'm definitely going to go, have my (free!) ticket and everything. Looking forward to it.

    SCHEDULE of films

    Thank you so much for this! It's one I didn't know about and it works!

    Glenn Miller Story

    I'm pretty sure it was a baseball game, as I saw it earlier this year. Jimmy Stewart's character is a baseball player who is recalled to the Air Force from the reserve, and there's a scene at a ball game early on in the movie.

    Glenn Miller Story

    I watched it a couple of nights ago, absolutely love it and have done since I saw it first at the movie theatre as a kid. One of my favourites...
  12. Yes, it was John Payne. I was disappointed that he went out a different door, so we didn't get to see him up close, but I loved both of them in the show.
  13. I was lucky enough to see Alice Faye on stage in a revival of Good News in Toronto in the early 1970s. Even got her autograph after the show. She was charming.
  14. Is Suicide Squadron also known as Dangerous Moonlight? If so it's one I'd like to see again.
  15. I truly can't remember the first movie in which I saw Judy, though I'm pretty sure it was NOT The Wizard of Oz. Could have been In the Good Old Summertime, or an Andy Hardy or even A Star Is Born. Doesn't matter, I love her in all of them. I'd like to say 'thank you' for a truly delightful Daily Dose today, containing as it did two of my favourite numbers.
