Various MGM stars from yesterday present their favourite musical moments from the studio's 50 year history.
A shadow of its former self, this was one of only five MGM films released in 1974. And given that it is mostly a compilation of existing footage, it can't truly be considered a "new" movie.
The year is 1929; the singer, Cliff Edwards, also known as Ukelele Ike. The film: "Hollywood Revue"; it is the first all-talking, all-singing, all-dancing movie ever made. In the years that followed, "Singin' in the Rain" would become a theme song ...
Liza Minnelli states that she regularly rushed home from school to visit whichever set that her mother Judy Garland was working on at MGM. In fact, Judy Garland's final film at MGM was Summer Stock in 1949, when Ms Minnelli was all of 3 years old and, presumably in Kindergarten, unable to rush anywhere unaccompanied.
After the closing credits, some video releases include the film's original instrumental exit overture.
