So many. I mean, if it’s a musical, I’ll almost assuredly love it. Even the Greatest Showman. Wow! La La Land. All pushing the boundaries and still doing new things after 90 years of musicals. But probably my favourite is a lesser known one, Two Weeks With Love. Superb and so funny. Love it. My dear departed Mum called me up one Saturday afternoon 20 something years ago to tell me it was being shown on a free to air channel in Eastern Australia. And we just HAD to watch it. It’s been our favourite ever since.
A very young Debbie Reynolds is amazing and so cute and funny, her sense of comedic timing evident even at such a young age. Riccardo Montalban such a debonair character and dances so well. But Jane Powell, wow that voice AND she can dance too. So many great songs but such a fun film. It’s not the greatest but it’s my favourite because it no worries reminds me so much of my Mum and how much she loved musicals. I fell in love with Doris Day because of her. I still remember the weird looks I got from the guy at the video store as we rented all of Doris' big hits. So funny. He just didn’t get it. So many don’t but how sad that they are missing our on this amazing genre that illicits such fondness and warmth of heart. Is it the dancing, the singing, the storylines? I think it’s everything put together. Wow.
