Each film is introduced by Mickey Rooney, lovingly restored, and every disc is jammed packed full of extras. With the option of a commentary by John Fricke
The bonus disc is worth the cost of this box set on its own. This bonus disc includes the interview Mickey Rooney did for TCM, and the Judy Garland song book, a collection of Judys best loved songs from her films.
The five-disc set includes the bonus disc. Still photographs and the book Private Screenings with Mickey Rooney, Babes in Arms" (1939). Strike Up the Band" (1940). Babes on Broadway" (1941). Girl Crazy" (1943).
The box set is immense, with an extensive booklet, bonus disc featuring a Judy Garland songbook and an interview Mickey Rooney did for TCM, a set of beautiful glossy photographs of the dynamic duo, and 4 discs jam packed with extras such as commentaries by the acclaimed Garland historian John Fricke, stereo remixes, audio bonuses, vintage short films and trailers.
The four films here are presented in stunning black and white, and include Babes in Arms (1939), Strike Up The Band (1940), Babes on Broadway (1941) and Girl Crazy (1943).
Garland and Rooney fans never had it so good!
One of the best things is the bonus disk, especially the 'Judy Garland Song book' which is worth the money in itself. Over twenty full-length song clips from Judy's movies scanning the years from 1936 - 1954. Brilliant! Wish i could give it ten stars!
individually and collectively,of not only "The Mick" - Mickey Rooney and Judy Garland,but all the supporting players,performers,directors,music composers and arrangers,et al,including,of course,the producer of the film musicals in this DVD Set:Arthur Freed.Also the Turner and Warner companies deserve much credit and praise for devising and producing this much-needed DVD Set!,which has the following four Mickey and Judy film musicals:BABES IN ARMS,BABES ON BROADWAY,STRIKE UP THE BAND and
GIRL CRAZY,plus a bonus DVD of an interview with Mickey Rooney,21 complete Judy Garland song performances from some of her most famous film musicals and a Mickey & Judy Trailer Gallery.
This extra DVD resides in a 48-page book which provides in-depth details of the above four feature films,with photographs,film posters,etc. Each feature film DVD has extras,such as radio plays,and two of the discs -BABES IN ARMS and GIRL CRAZY - have commentaries by Film and Judy Garland Historian,John Fricke.......and each of the four films is introduced by Mickey Rooney.
Unfortunately,the dynamic Mickey Rooney,over the years,has been overshadowed by Judy Garland and underated,needlessly underated.These four films prove just what a superb,versatile and multi-talented artist and performer Mickey Rooney is!:He is a quite a good actor,quite a good dancer,not a bad singer,a good drummer,a very good piano player,a good comedian,etc - he is a great star! And his talents ought to be more recognised and appreciated.
As for Judy Garland,well.......Read more ›
The presentation of this set is very well done, with postcards,an informative booklet,and a disc full of extras including Mickey Rooney in a recent interview.Watching Rooney now as an old man, he really has lived an interesting life,and kept busy. He is one of the last surviving people of the "golden years" at MGM. Also great to see is the Judy Garland songbook, clips of her singing over 20 of her songs from the movies. The whole package is given an attractive silvery sheen,foil wrap effect.
Extras such as cartoons, trailers and radio spots from the time add to the sense of history. I have not come across an item that so brilliantly captures the magic of the cinema,in a very long time.
