  1. THE UNSINKABLE MOLLY BROWN or 42ND STREET would be my choice. Can't decide which one. Although MOLLY BROWN's choreography is a lot harder. Maybe 42ND STREET is the way to go.
  2. I really like 42ND STREET, THE DOLLY SISTERS and KISMET. But, the best musical of all time is, clearly, THE SOUND OF MUSIC. Nothing else even comes close.
  3. *Scrooge* *White Christmas* I also like the made-for-TV films, *A Christmas Carol: The Musical* and *Mrs. Santa Claus*
  4. Favorite play is *Wait Until Dark* Favorite musical is *South Pacific*
  5. > {quote:title=joefilmone wrote:}{quote} > . A new version could be made and they will probably blame global warming for the bird attacks- In modern-day horror, man is always the monster. That's Hollywood thinking they're being relevant, when what they're being, is just boring.
  6. *Bambi* is the only film on that list with which I agree. Maybe *Philadelphia*, but the rest? The exclusion of *Old Yeller* and *All Mine to Give* is completely preposterous. Actually, the saddest film I ever saw was a television film called *Who Will Love My Children?* Nothing else even comes close.
  7. She did, however, win a Tony Award for *Li'l Abner*
  8. > {quote:title=markfp2 wrote:}{quote} > I find it interesting that Disney is releasing it letterboxed, but making a big deal calling it a "new expanded version". Now, if they would just release "new expanded versions" of all the films that they released in P&S. Absolutely! Disney and Columbia are the worst!
  9. NZ, my name is Brendan, not Brenda. And, what are you actually saying? Because I'm not a fan of Gene Kelly's, I shouldn't post here! How preposterious! Besides, who the hell are you to be telling people what they can and cannot do? I love lots of musical films. I'm not a fan of Kelly's, or some of the films you mentioned. So what? Do you love every musical and every person that ever appeared in them? Your post is absurd!
  10. I suppose if there were a gun to my head, I'd have to say *Hairspray*, but I find it seriously flawed. As for *Moulin Rouge*, it is among the worst films ever made, imo. Maybe the worst.
  11. You just named a whole lot of films that I think are awful. And Kelly's ego coming through his performance is off-putting and highly unwanted, to my way of thinking, regardless of his talents.
  12. My posts have nothing to do with the copyright issue. I was addressing the use of the same basic material. My example of *Cinderella*, was to highlight just how often that type of story is told. Everything from direct remakes of the actual story, to *My Fair Lady, Pretty Woman* and *The Princess Diaries*. I would say the film *Nightmare*, is equally as derivative of *Rear Window* as *Disturbia*.
  13. > {quote:title=CelluloidKid wrote:}{quote} > Yeah but _Cinderella_ & _Rear Window_ are 2 seperate things! What?
  14. Not according to Saul Chaplin, who was there. But then, who knows? None of us were there. Chaplin says Donen danced with Gene, twice.
  15. Most of what comes out of Hollywood, today, is just a re-working of something for the Youtube generation. So what? *Cinderella* has been reworked over the years, about a thousand times.
  16. I found much to like about *Disturbia*. Considering how many truly awful films there are, today, I'm surprised to find someone with that much hatred for a fairly innocuous bit of entertainment. It wasn't the first time that someone reworked *Rear Window*. There is a television film from the 1970s called *Nightmare*, with Patty Duke and Richard Crenna, that borrowed from it, as well. I also like that film.
  17. I think the film is plodding and dull, and doesn't compare to *The Misfits* at all. It has a fairly good cast, but the direction is really labored and static, imo.
  18. The number was filmed twice. Gene Kelly and Stanley Donen did the dancing. They switched positions for the second shoot, then the effects department at Columbia superimposed the the two pieces of film, replace Stanley with Gene.
  19. I would send *The Sound of Music*, to show them what a spectacularly beautiful world and people we are; and, *Taxi Driver*, to keep them guessing!
  20. Living Together Growing Together from Lost Horizon
  21. A single released by The Fifth Dimension of Living Together Growing Together went to #32 on the Billboard Charts.
  22. Other than *Under Capricorn* and *The Paradine Case*, which I find insufferably dull, I like every other Hitchcock film. Especially most of the ones mentioned in this thread!
