Parade of Teaser Fragments
MGM promo for its lavish productions, mainly musicals, for 1955, including It's Always Fair Weather, Love Me or Leave Me, and a few other perennials that have stood the test of time. Also, of course, are a few that didn't pan-out, including Bedevilled and The Glass Slipper. All the clips, however, are in visually striking color, making for eye-type entertainment. Odd, however, that the intense b&W downer The Blackboard Jungle would be mentioned amidst the Technicolor parade. Also, are backstage clips with camera, lighting, sets, etc., the reality behind the dreams, always fascinating to catch. I'm not sure where the studio planned to show the promo, but wherever, the clips along with the many stars— Cagney, Kelly, Day, et al-- remain a treat for old movie fans.
