Debbie R. replied to Cheryl52's topic in MAD ABOUT MUSICALS: THE HISTORY OF THE HOLLYWOOD MUSICALSI tried watching The Boyfriend a few months ago when it was on and could not make it through and tried again this time. Same result...just do not like it. I prefer me some Judy Garland, Gene Kelly, Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers I guess.
If I have to pick just one it would have to be Singing in the Rain. My favorite of all time. From the story itself, to all the musical numbers it is complete perfection. Gene and Donald's tap numbers are amazing and a young Debbie Reynold's-fabulous!! I even went to see it recently when they played it at my local movie theater.
