Jjustmee replied to Dr. Vanessa Theme Ament's topic in MAD ABOUT MUSICALS: THE HISTORY OF THE HOLLYWOOD MUSICALSSimply put I often reflect and enjoy looking back although seeing the great Ziegfeld it is a theme that has been repeated time after time find the “it” girl do whatever it takes. Poor frank Morgan. The enjoyment for me is that it does reflect society then. Even today there is a need to escape reality the mundane day to day and enjoy something, Even if it is birdwatching. Considering the question at hand I believe society at the time were looks for the music, fashion and the great Ziegfeld with his over the top stage settings.
