1:30 amClassic Hollywood: Musicals Featuring some of the most iconic images ever recorded on film, these 5 classic Hollywood musicals - The Wizard of Oz, Yankee Doodle Dandy, Singin' in the Rain, Seven Brides for Seven Brothers, and Viva Las Vegas - will take you on a journey across the Golden Age of movie musicals, spanning the days from the Great Depression all the way to the Civil Rights Movement.
With foot-stomping dance numbers, technicolor fantasy worlds, and soaring ballads sung by some of the world's most beloved stars, these movies still inspire audiences to laugh, love and dream - even when times are tough. But bringing a Hollywood classic to life is never easy. The Wizard of Oz director, Victor Fleming once said, "Obstacles make for a better picture," and if he's right, then it's no wonder these movies became great.
Discover how these films overcame ballooning budgets, life-threatening injuries, inexperienced actors, dueling egos, and a declaration of war - that literally brought production to a halt - to become some of the most treasured movies in history. These films capitalized on established stars, like James Cagney showing off his song and dance skills as Broadway legend George M. Cohan in Yankee Doodle Dandy; Gene Kelly dancing in the rain at the zenith of his career; and Elvis Presley teaming up with Ann-Margret to set off romantic sparks like the big screen hasn't seen before or since.
New stars were born, too: Singin' in the Rain launched the career of 19-year old newcomer Debbie Reynolds, and The Wizard of Oz took 16-year old Judy Garland down a yellow brick road to the pinnacle of movie stardom. Perhaps most importantly, these films gave the world truly inspiring musical moments: Gene Kelly singin' and dancin' in the rain, despite a fever; a barn-raising dance number with 7 times the romance; a theme song for Las Vegas; patriotic tunes that inspired generations of young soldiers marching into war; and one little girl singing - and dreaming - of somewhere over the rainbow. Join Nick Clooney as he takes you on a journey - alongside some of our greatest movie stars - of laughter and inspiration. duration 57:19 STEREO TVG
