Fred Astaire hosts this compilation film of highlights from some of 20th Century Fox's best musicals. Among the performers included are Barbra Streisand, Carmen Miranda, Maurice Chevalier, Frank Sinatra and the Ritz Brothers.
Oddly, while this special included excerpts from four decades of Fox musicals, the producers neglected to include footage from five of its heavy-hitters, the Rodgers and Hammerstein blockbusters Oklahoma! (1955), Carousel (1956), The King and I (1956), South Pacific (1958) and the 1962 remake of State Fair (1962). Fox owned the rights to all of these in part, and footage from The Sound of Music (1965) was utilized, which indicates this was not a rights issue with the Rodgers and Hammerstein Organization.
