Musicals that DESPERATELY need to be remade...

I agree. And this applies to Hollywood remakes of foreign films. When I see something like SCARLET STREET, which I love very much-- it makes me curious how the earlier French version LA CHIENNE was made (without production code restrictions).

 

Good point about foreign films that I'll use when the topic of remakes comes up again (which it will of course).

Plus the language barriers usually necessitate the remake, so Hollywood can market a story to English speaking audiences. Not everyone wants to read subtitles, and subtitled films typically do not make as much money with moviegoers as remakes in English.
