Product Description

Highlights from the great musicals of the 1940s. Stars featured include Judy Garland, Mickey Rooney, Fred Astaire, Gene Kelly, Bing Crosby, Doris Day, Danny Kaye, Jimmy Durante and Frank Sinatra. The DVD also features the WWII revue feature, 'Hollywood Victory Caravan', which saw the likes of Bob Hope, Bing Crosby and Humphrey Bogart doing their bit to entertain the troops.

From the Back Cover

In the 1940s, America was just emerging from The Great Depression. War engulfed half the world, and the future looked uncertain. The Hollywood Musical had the recipe to make things better. Because of the Hollywood Musical people still believed that dreams really do come true. Glamour spread across the screen. In glorious colour, even in black and white, the screen glittered.

Join Judy Garland, Mickey Rooney, Jeanette MacDonald, Fred Astaire, Alice Faye, Gene Kelly, Betty Grable, John Payne, Ann Miller, George Murphy, Maragret O'Brien, Bing Crosby, Doris Day, Danny Kaye, Carmen Miranda, Frank Sinatra, Martha Raye, Jimmy Durante, Lena Horne, Tony Martin, and a host of others as we celebrate the great musicals of the 1940s, when Hollywood put its best feet forward - dancing feet. From nostalgia to contemporary jazz, the Hollywood Musical had it all in the 1940s.

Additional feature
Hollywood Vicory Caravan is typical of the War Bond promotions of the second World War. Musical comedy stars Bing Crosby, Betty Hutton, Carmen Cavallero, Bob Hope and Olga San Juan strut their stuff in this musical short. Barbara Stanwyck, Alan Ladd, Humphrey Bogart and Robert Benchley make cameo appearances. Rare behind-the-scenes views of the Paramount studio highlight this gem from the 1940s. This is a real treat for fans of the musical!

What this actually consists of is trailers from the movies, rather than proper excerpts. To make matters worse, most of it is out of synch, so that lip movements and speech do not coincide. Avoid!

I was rather disapointed with this DVD.The subject is of course full of pleasure and indeed they include lots of the best films. It consists mainly of trailers which stop as soon as something good starts. Nevertheless a good introduction to some of the best films which you then need to buy!

Format: VHS Tape
I bought this title because im a HUGE fan of Judy Garland so i got this VHS. When I put it on, I found that the sound was muffled and the picture oh my god it was terrible. However, there was some good stuff on it, from what I can gatter there are some different angles of a scene in The Harvey Girls a Judy Garland movie, and these would be kind of rare. But the main thing was a glimse of The Pirate the Judy Garland movie that has been out of print for years and also on this there is a different take of a scene in this as well. Whoa that was a lot of typing anyway all the clips from the movies are trailers which is king of anoying when your trying to see the clips. Over all this movie/show is very badly put together. Oh yes one other thing the slips of Bathing Beauty (an Ester Wilems movie) are in B/W when the movie is really in colour. STAY AWAY FROM THIS IF YOUR LOOKING FOR A GOOD SHOW ON 1940S MOVIES.

I got this for mum in law, as she had taken an interest in musicals of this era, so thinking it would be quite long clips of each film I sent for it.
Each clip was short, often ending before the song was over, this was very disappointing for a lady of 92, who really enjoys singing along to the songs.

Very disappointing. Only snippets of the musicals and very bitty. A very cheap product and would not recommend at all.

If you want a brief idea of what happened back then or just can't remember this is a reminder but it does have a trailer feel about it. For the price it's worth a trip down memory lane.

A fast moving DVD bringing back some great musicals of yesteryear. A worthwhile purchase for a night of good music and sheer enjoyment. Arrived promptly and in excellent condition.
