That's a good idea, though I didn't see many of them in the library's listing.

My public library allows patrons to request a title from another branch in the system. Though it might take up to a week to get it. The title is usually sent over if another branch has it and nobody else has checked it out.

You just have to plan ahead and see what sort of services your library system provides.

The list I'm looking at is for the other nearby libraries too. Most of them would be coming that way.  I only see three more, besides Top Hat, which is coming on the next shuttle :)

Good. Well at least you'll be able to see some of them.

Here are a few additional options:

Check to see if your library has any of the movies available as electronic content. My hometown library has movies available that way.

Look for public domain copies of Royal Wedding, Road to Bali and perhaps other films which qualify. These should be readily available online at sources like archive.org or streaming from other video providers. (Note: public domain status is tricky. It's a Wonderful Life was and still is public domain as a film technically, but the music and script are copyrighted which means it's not so readily available online.)

Sign up for a streaming movie service which carries the desired films and binge watch them during the trial period. If you can find one with a nice long trial period you might not even have to binge watch.

Most of the streaming movie services that I've checked on don't give you much idea of what their content is before you sign up.  I'd rather know what I'm getting first.  I actually saw Road to Bali on a cable channel that I get where I am a couple of months ago, so not too worried about that one.  I'll keep on checking around, though.

I am glad to see such a variety of musical movies on the list. Something for all tastes. I seen Beach Party was listed it brought back memories, on the TV of course not when they came out. ? The Rat pack. So I’ll definitely tune in to that. And My Fair Lady I so love anything with Audrey Hepburn. And if Ginger Rogers is in it I’ll watch it. And Holiday Inn and Meet me in St Louis I have them on DVD. So many great ones coming up.

Yes, it's a fine schedule, even if it is not fully representative of different studios' output in the genre.

I have been setting my DVR with the ones I want to watch! If it wasn’t for me DVRing The Wizard of Oz, then I would have never known about this course!

Yes, what we do without our DVRs. :)

A few musicals from TCM's list are available (free) on My Retro Flix (and are listed here: http://www.myretroflix.com/23movies/PlaylistGenerator_musicals.asp). Commercials are included, but the films are not cut, so far as I've noticed. [ETA: I saw commercials when watching via Roku a while ago, but see no commercials when watching on my computer.]

Thank you so much for this!  It's one I didn't know about and it works!
