I love Irene Dunne, Jeannette MacDonald, Jane Powell, Shirley Jones, Lesley Caron, Howard Keel, Gordon MacRae and Nelson Eddy. They all were superstars and superbly talented. They lit up the screen with their gorgeous/handsome looks and radiant personalities.

I agree with you, Sheldon. Vera-Ellen was the greatest dancer on screen. Her career last much too short. She just got better with each movie. It would be difficult to pick a favorite movie, but as far as musical numbers, you can't beat her duet with Gene Kelly doing "Slaughter on Tenth Avenue" from "Words and Music." Nothing short of perfect.

I missed out on the whole generation of most of the great musicals came out in so I am stuck trying to figure out what are the good ones to watch. I normally will see one and then take that person and watch another one of theres and then that will lead me to a new person and so on. Like I would watch Seven Brides with Seven Brothers which led me to watch Royal Wedding and Calamiity Jane. So I always see the same performers in almost all of my movies. But the most popular Males are prolly between Howard Keel, Fred Astair and Gene Kelly. Sometimes even Elvis Presley. Some of the Females are Kathryn Grayson, Doris Day, Cyd Charisse and Debbie Reynolds.

I really think the era of "great" musicals began with Robert Wise's *West Side Story*. Prior to that, there were really good ones, and mostly dumb ones, but none that I thought were great! Of course, that's entirely a matter of opinion. It's just mine.
