Musicals on Tap

MGM Question--

 

Often when it was time for a Star to take a star turn on screen, she might dance with her co-star or she might just dance with her choreographer - - as that would give her a lot of confidence.

 

Can you name 2 MGM movies in the 1940s when the star took a dancing star turn with her choreographer.

 

We need the 2 stars, the choreographer- dancing partners and the name of 2 the movies.

This film marked important transitions for its' three female stars.  One "officially" grew up, and the studio noted the fact by having her wear a hot pink evening gown.  For the the two other stars, this marked the end of their contract/s with the studio.  Please name the film, the three stars, and the studio.

OK, here goes:

 

Three Tap Dancers - "Broadway Melody Of 1940" - Eleanor Powell, Fred Astaire, George Murphy

 

Two Tap Dancers - "Singin' In The Rain" - Gene Kelly, Donald O'Connor

 

A Tap Dancer And A Singer - "On The Town" - Ann Miller, Frank Sinatra

 

A Tap Dancer Who Is An Acclaimed Singer - This is somewhat subjective, but I'll go with Sammy Davis Jr. in "Porgy And Bess"

Miles, Good job.

 

But there was a method to my madness - - you could have answered all of them partially and the last one completely with just one name--Astaire.

 

Well that was putting down a lot of leather!

 

Miles, now it's your turn--
