Classical Hollywood Musicals
Featuring some of the most iconic images ever recorded on film, this documentary looks at five classic Hollywood musicals — "The Wizard of Oz," "Yankee Doodle Dandy," "Singin’ in the Rain," "Seven Brides for Seven Brothers," and "Viva Las Vegas." Through lively dance numbers, Technicolor fantasies, and songs sung by the world’s most beloved stars, these films continue to inspire viewers today. But bringing them to life was not easy. Ballooning budgets, life-threatening injuries, inexperienced actors, dueling egos, even a declaration of war that halted production were just a few of the challenges these films faced before they could become treasured movies in history.
