  1. I rented Flower Drum Song and watched it last night, so I can comment on it. It is really a fabulous film. Any self respecting musicals fan who hasn't seen it really should. Actually it felt a lot more like an MGM musical rather than Rodgers and Hammerstein. It just seemed so natural--just as I like a movie musical--and not so stagy. As I said, do see it if you get a chance. I will definately be picking up a copy of the original soundtrack when I go to the CD store this weekend!
  2. I will be picking up a few of these DVD's, though not the whole set. SUMMER STOCK I already have on VHS and rarely ever watch. FAIR WEATHER I will probably be getting, as I do not have it. ZIEGFELD FOLLIES is a MUST; I have it on VHS but this is one of the more opulent MGM musicals and it screams for a DVD. I'm torn on whether to get the DVD of TILL THE CLOUDS; I already have the Goodtimes DVD release and it is satisfactory but oh to see what Warner has done with original film elements--I'm sure it will be just spectacular. THREE LITTLE WORDS is also already in my collection on VHS; if I
  3. Yeah, that part I know. Actually the 1933 original is the best of all versions, but I was just speaking in context of the ROdgers and Hammerstein musical film.
  4. My favorites are: The King and I A finer R&H musical has never been written. State Fair (1962 version) The 1945 original just doesn't do it for me...it's just too sweet and schmalzy. Plus the '62 version is in Cinemascope, and I'm a sucker for 1960s musicals. Cinderella (1965 Lesley Ann Warren version) The Julie Andrews original, which is now available on DVD, is nice for curio value but the Lesley Ann Warren remake is the one I grew up with--for me, there's NO alternative. I also like South Pacific, because it has some of the most breathtaking photography you'll ever
  5. Not sure if I've posted to this thread before or not, but here goes... Lucille Ball, especially in her earlier years--like in Ziegfeld Follies Vera-Ellen I thought Jane Wyman was gorgeous in Pollyanna and the #1 most beautiful woman ever on screen... MAUREEN O'HARA!
  6. For me, it's MAME (1974), starring Lucille Ball, Robert Preston, and Bea Arthur
  7. Thanks Let'em keep the musicals a-comin! TMS
  8. Edge, Do you have any specifics on a release date for this? If so, inquiring minds want to know! Thanks, TMS
  9. I have the Goodtimes DVD of Till the Clouds Roll By, and it's sufficient, but I'll be ditching it in favor of the new one when it comes out. I'll definately be going for the whole box set! All the rest (except It's Always Fair Weather) I already have on video, but the DVDs will be worth it!
  10. Hallelujah! If for no other reason than to have Ziegfeld Follies on DVD, and Ziegfeld Follies in a legit release finally!
  11. Bing Crosby and Fred Astaire - even though they were only in like 2 pictures together Howard Keel and Kathryn Grayson Mario Lanza and Kathryn Grayson Judy Garland and Gene Kelly John Wayne and Maureen O'Hara Jack Lemmon and Walter Matthau Fred Astaire and Vera-Ellen - in my opinion, this was the best dance team ever at Metro - should have been in more movies And any movies that Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz were in together (like Long Long Trailer)
  12. My 10 favorites (in no particular order) 1. Auntie Mame 2. Secret Garden (1949 version with Margaret O'Brien) 3. McLintock! 4. Bells of St. Mary's 5. Going My Way 6. Irving Berlin's White Christmas 7. The Parent Trap (1961 version with Hayley Mills and Maureen O'Hara) 8. Ziegfeld Follies 9. Victor/Victoria 10. The Adventures of Robin Hood
  13. Just to clarify, my post below is about the very old 1935 British version of A Christmas Carol, simply entitled SCROOGE.
  14. I picked up the DVD today, so I'll answer my question... My DVD is one of the cheap versions, from Westlake Entertainment Group, edition 3191. I came across it in my local K-mart for $1.99 and grabbed it. I figured the picture and sound quality would suck, but I bought it anyway for, if nothing else, comparison to the other more popular versions (Owen, Sim, Scott, etc). Actually, in terms of the quality of the transfer, it isn't that bad. The film is quite scratchy in many spots, which is to be expected, but is very watchable (and for $2, you can't go wrong). Sound quality is fine;
  15. .....Anyone buy the new DVD yet? How is it? Hopefully better than the VHS, which itself wasn't that bad. Also, anyone check out the new Boys Town DVD yet?
