I watched 5 movies today! Whew. Because they kept on going!? The Great Ziegfeld Broadway Melody of 1936 Born to Dance The Broadway Melody 42nd Street Happy and Exhausted. Going to bed!
My favorite musical combines dance and song - Kiss Me Kate, beginning with Ann Miller's tap dance and Bob Fosse as one of the three jesters. Howard Keel's wonderful voice with Kathryn Grayson is pure delight and, of course, Keenan Wynn's Brush Up Your Shakespeare. I used this in my Intro to Lit Freshman classes to grumpy students who were sure that they weren't going to like Shakespeare!
