Judygfan1 replied to Dr. Vanessa Theme Ament's topic in MAD ABOUT MUSICALS: THE HISTORY OF THE HOLLYWOOD MUSICALSThere are so many musicals I love, but without a doubt, I'd have to say "The Wizard of Oz." It has been my favorite movie since childhood. I've seen it more times than I can count, but I still adore it! I think this is because it is timeless. There's things children and adults alike can take from the film, and the music is iconic. Judy Garland, to me, is the ultimate movie musical star. She inspired me to do musical theatre in my community. "Singin' in the Rain" is also fantastic: Gene Kelly and Debbie Reynolds are two more of my favorite performers! "Meet Me in St. Louis" and "Swing Time" come to mind, as well. I feel like all of these musicals have withstood the test of time because of their relatable stories and characters.
