That's Entertainment... 1, 2 and 3

5 posts in this topic

Anyone wanting a condensed but entertaining look at musicals over the years might like to check out 'That's Entertainment'... made in 3 parts.  It's available from TCM in a DVD set, and includes 'That's Dancing'.  If you're mad about musicals, it's very entertaining.

I have all of these films and plan to watch them soon.

In some ways, the first one is the best, as they had no idea if the idea would take off.  That's Entertainment II had Astaire and Kelly for the hosts with small bits of dancing and banter between the clips.  Entertainment III features a lot of things cut from the films.  Although the finale just seems to rehash clips we have seen before.

I love those three movies, along with THAT'S DANCING and INVITATION TO DANCE.  TD is a compilation of clips like the THAT'S ENTERTAINMENT series, with Kelly and a host of other dancers narrating.  Naturally, it looks at MGM films, but it also looks at RKO and Warner Brothers performances.  ITD was Kelly's dream project, two hours of dancing to tell the story--no dialogue.
