Coming Soon from MGM
The Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Story (1951)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

As the 1950s came around, MGM was in some major financial trouble after several movies didn't catch on at the box office so they produced this 50 minute documentary hosted by Lionel Barrymore. The point of this documentary was to highlight several of the MGM films that were going to be released in the year in hopes that theater owners would be excited and not lose faith in them.

So what you basically have is a trailer compilation so if you enjoy such things then you'll probably have fun watching this. Countless trailers are shown including VENGEANCE VALLEY, ROYAL WEDDING, THE RED BRIDGE OF COURAGE, SOLDIERS THREE, THE PAINTED HILLS, THE GREAT CARUSO, EXCUSE MY DUST, SHOW BOAT, AN American IN Paris and QUO VADIS among others. It should be noted that each film doesn't have the trailer played in full but overall this is just a way for the studio to show what was coming up. It's certainly nothing special and will mainly appeal to people who would want to see clips from these films.
