I am enjoying the mad about musicals course, but I have one question. How come no one has made any mention of Rogers and Hammerstein?  They wrote some of the greatest musicals ever, which were made into some of the greatest movies ever, but I haven't heard or read one word about them. Did I miss something or are you saving them for last. Chronologically they should have already been mentioned, yes? Just wondering.

I don't think TCM has the rights to play some of the R&H movies for us to review, but they were mentioned, I believe in the lecture notes both together and separately.

That's my biggest disappointment about this course. What happened with rights/licensing? I know I've seen Rodgers and Hammerstein movies on TCM in the past, but not in recent years.

About Rodgers and Hammerstein

As an agency, R&H encompasses a music publishing company; a concert rental library; and a theatrical licensing branch that collectively represent more than 5,000 songs, 900 concert pieces, 200 writers, and 100 musicals, including works by Irving Berlin, Stephen Schwartz, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Adam Guettel, Rodgers & Hart, Kern & Hammerstein, and many more.

So here's my question, and I'm hoping a moderator or instructor will see it. Did TCM / Ball State ask for permission and were refused by R&H? If so, shame on R&H. Or is it more complicated than that?
