Andi BC replied to Dr. Vanessa Theme Ament's topic in MAD ABOUT MUSICALS: THE HISTORY OF THE HOLLYWOOD MUSICALSAs some of you stated, I too was raised on film - mostly musicals - because my father was a huge fan! For me, Singin' in the Rain is an all time favorite. I also love Shall We Dance when Fred Astaire dances with the women wearing Ginger Rogers masks. Musicals take me to another world of carefree bliss. Can't beat that!
