That’s Entertainment! (1974)

MGM was widely considered the premier architect of musicals during Hollywood’s golden age. So, when the studio set out to celebrate its 50th anniversary 50 years ago, the logical move was to create a documentary highlighting the greatest musical moments from some of their greatest films. It’s an all-singing, all-dancing, all-star extravaganza with generous clips from classics like Singin’ in the Rain (1952), The Wizard of Oz (1931), Gigi (1958), Seven Brides for Seven Brothers (1954) and AN AMERICAN IN PARIS (1951). Co-hosts include stars Gene Kelly and Fred Astaire among others presenting tributes to each other and Liza Minnelli presenting the best numbers to feature her mother, Judy Garland. Not only was the film a big hit, but it also inspired theatrical and home video reissues of MGM’s musicals.
