jmhave825 replied to MarkH's topic in MAD ABOUT MUSICALS: THE HISTORY OF THE HOLLYWOOD MUSICALSI am glad to see this topic. I felt this course was lopsided, towand MGM and W B musicals. I did not realise that flim library would limit course material . My love of Classic film came from my childhood when the local NBC affiliate would show movies every weekday afternoon. They showed many Fox, paramount, and Columbia musical. when I was a l ittle girl I loved coming home and watching these musicals. Alice Faye, Betty Grable, Jack Haley, Shirley temple are among the performers missing or under represented in this course. Betty Grable and Alice Fayes musicals were so patriotic and very much of their time.
