Movie Info

This represents MGM's 1976 sequel to its enormously successful compilation film That's Entertainment (1974). In lieu of the multi-narrator device of the first film, director Gene Kelly chooses to limit the hosting chores to two people: himself, and his friendly rival Fred Astaire.

I think there's something to say about me if I prefer watching old movie clips to an actual breathing film. I liked the first one better, and the cohesiveness of this thing was definitely lacking, but the inclusion of KISS ME KATE made me very, very pleased.
