| We Must Have Music was an interesting promotional short for M-G-M especially when viewing some of the cut scenes from their movies
This was basically a promotional short for the M-G-M musicals but there are some treats like Judy Garland's cut title number from Ziegfeld Girl, Rise Stevens' rendition of "America the Beautiful" cut from The Chocolate Soldier, Herbert Stothart conducting the score from said film, and Busby Berkeley choreographing the "Hoedown" number in Babes on Broadway. There's also scenes of the various studio musicals and, to really fill time just as I'm filling for number of lines in this review, pages of the studio movie titles along with the stars and the conductors with a check attached to each name of those latter occupation at the bottom of the papers. So on that note, We Must Have Music is worth a look for you're so inclined. It's an extra on the Ziegfeld Girl DVD.
