    Robert Preston

    Has Robert Preston ever been a SOTM or a day in the August Summer Under the Stars? After watching "The Music Man" last night on TCM, I looked up his filmography and never realized what a wonderful variety of movies in which he has starred. I know your schedules are planned well in advance, but would like to to see Robert Preston as a SOTM or Summer Under the Stars feature performer.
  2. Eleanor Powell was the best dancer of all the women dancers of her time. She had such power behind her! She was discriminated against as many male dancers (including Fred Astaire from what I've read) were jealous of her abilities. I don't know if that's true, but it wouldn't surprise me! Too bad she couldn't have been around even ten years later during the time of Ann Miller, another fabulous, powerful dancer whose career spanned decades.
  3. I totally agree with oftroy59 - it would have been much more of a children's movie if Shirley Temple had played the role. She was still doing movies like "The Blue Bird" and "The Little Princess" around this time, which were beautiful movies, but she was still very young and actually I think Dorothy needs to be a little older, a little more independent to embark by herself on the journey to Oz (as expressed by Brittany Ashley). The Shirley Temple of "Since You Went Away" and "I'll Be Seeing You" (one of the most underrated Christmas movies of all!), would be much more how the young woman we have come to think of as Dorothy - innocent but spunky, frightened but brave, and always standing up to the unfair treatment of others.
  4. It is impossible to choose one musical, but my top 5 I can watch over and over: Gigi My Fair Lady Hard Day's Night The Sound of Music An American in Paris (well, really, any Gene Kelly musical!) I would have to say the top 3 factors for why I love these: Star factor, Song(s) factor, and Visual Appeal factor.
