During the 1950s, musical masterpieces that are still to be equaled were produced in Cinemascope with stereophonic sound. This video explores how the post-war years were alive with bold experimentation in musical film. Later in the decade, Rock and Roll became the musical choice of the younger generation and movie musicals followed suit. Highlights of this programme include clips from films based in smash Broadway musicals which become the rage with hits like "The King And I", "Oklahoma!", "Carousel" and "South Pacific" making their way into movie theatres... A pretty starlet with no musical training named Marilyn Monroe taking the world by storm in "Gentlemen Prefer Blondes".
Favourites from the previous decade continued to delight audiences in films starring the likes of Betty Grable, Esther Williams and Jane Powell... Judy Garland made a comeback in "A Star Is Born", while the fresh faces of Mitzi Gaynor, Leslie Caron, Doris Day and Debbie Reynolds captured the hearts of America... Includes clips and extended interviews and stories from Liza Minnelli, Debbie Reynolds, Tommy Tune, Rob Marshall and Allan Arkush.
